The photoelectric properties of ZnO whiskers obtained from the gas phase by the evaporation of a powder and metallic Zn under the continuous action of CO2 laser radiation are studied. On the basis of investigation of the InO–ZnO barrier structure, the mechanism of the photoconductivity of crystal ZnO caused by potential barriers is proposed.
