Abstract
The phenomenon of electron tunnel photoemission from the DLC film structure is discussed. Planar multi-electrode structure provides formation of zones of localization the electrostatic field of a certain topology. Under the influence of a strong electrostatic field, both equilibrium and nonequilibrium (photoexcited or "hot") electrons tunnel into the vacuum from the zone of concentration of electrostatic field. The results of experimental studies and theoretical simulations of the process show the saturation of photoemission current component with an increase in operating voltage. This fact makes it possible to realize the high-speed control of the spectral sensitivity of the photosensor. This is fundamentally important for applications in the modern electronic and photonic devices.
