The photoconduction on the samples was separately investigated at 445 nm and 532 nm wavelengths with continuous wave (CW) lasers providing 1W of average power.
Mechanooptic Regulation of Photoconduction. Considering the possibility of promoting controlled contributions of light for inducing a photoconduction behavior in the sample, we proposed the optoelectronic system assisted by a mechanical actuator illustrated in Figure 1.
While photoconduction was observed for the undecorated MWCNTs, no photoconduction was detected for the f-MWCNTs, but a redistribution of the charges in the resistive model together with a change in capacitance was present.
