Abstract : Infrared photoconductivity measurements on tellurium single crystals and evaporated films at 90K yielded a maximum response at 0.126 plus or minus 0.002 eV using a low power CO2 laser. The frequency dependence of the response was slow and could not be interpreted as fast intervalence band transitions. (Author)
