An experimental study has been carried out on the dependence of the hot-carrier highly nonlinear photovoltaic effect induced in silicon n+/p junctions by 10.6 μm laser pulses on the lattice temperature. A four orders of magnitude increase in the photovoltage was observed for a lattice temperature increase of 150 K. A model based on the hot-carrier plasma generated by the laser radiation fit the experimental results. Sensitivity can possibly be further improved by increasing the junction temperature. © 2002 American Institute of Physics.
