Résumé : The electrical properties of In/trans-polyacetylene/Electrodag+502 Schottky barrier cells were examined in the dark and under monochromatic and white light irradiation. The experiments were performed between -77 and +110 ° C. The In/trans-polyacetylene contact is strongly blocking. The photocurrent is proportional to the light intensity and the open-circuit photovoltage is an exponential function of light intensity. Owing to the low quantum yield for carrier production and collection, the fraction of light energy transformed into electrical energy is rather low (about 0.025%) under white light illumination. © 1983.
