The effect is illustrated in Fig. 625 Â 10À34 J s) and f is the photon’s frequency. In the past, the photoelectric effect has been traditionally used in vacuum tube amplifiers. This effect can also be used for developing special types of electromagnetic sensors. Because the work function depends on the material, sensors may be designed that are tuned to specific wavelengths. Such sensors are widely used for photoelectron microscopy. In such devices, the work function of a material is obtained by bombarding it with a monochromatic X-ray or UV source and measuring the kinetic energy of the emitted electrons.

If the electron–hole pair is located within the depletion region of the p–n junction, then the existing electric field will either sweep the electron to the n-type side or the hole to the p-type side. 38 Â 10À23 J/KÀ1), and T is the temperature of the p–n junction in Kelvin. Photovoltaic cells and sensors are commonly made from materials that absorb photons in the infrared, visible, and UV ranges: materials such as silicon (wavelengths between 190 and 1,100 nm), germanium (800–1,700 nm), indium gallium arsenide (800–2,600 nm), and lead sulfide (1,000–3,500 nm) are generally used.

However, more complexity can be added when describing a dynamic response of such systems with unusual behaviors. For instance, very often in semiconducting gas sensors, after the initial interactions of the gas with the surface, which is generally a first-order response, many other interactions might occur to change the order of the system. Gas molecules might further diffuse into the bulk of the materials, the morphology of the sensitive material might change, and several stages of interaction might occur.
