Diamond has been identified as a very promising material for X and ultraviolet sensing. In this Letter, a photoconductive device based on a freestanding homoepitaxial chemically vapor deposition (CVD) single-crystal diamond 500 μ m thick has been tested. Photoconductive measurements in coplanar and transverse configurations have been performed to characterize the device sensitivity in the 140-250 nm spectral range. Very high sensitivity values were achieved in both configurations. The sensitivity in the transverse configuration is at least 300 times higher than in the coplanar configuration. © 2005 American Institute of Physics
