Abstract

Recent work by Pejova [Mater. Res. Bull. 43, 2887 (2008)] showed that the widely cited classical photocurrent theory of DeVore [Phys. Rev. 102, 86 (1956)] does not necessarily apply for photocurrent experiments carried out on thin-film semiconductors. In this Letter, we theoretically and experimentally justify the successful use of the photocurrent model published by Bouchenaki et al. [J. Opt. Soc. Am. B 8, 691 (1991)].
