|Abstract:||In this article, the design and experimental characterization of γ−In2Se3/CuO interfaces are considered. Thin films of γ−In2Se3 are coated with thin layers of CuO at room temperature. The heterojunction device is structurally, morphologically and optically characterized. It is observed that the coating of CuO onto γ−In2Se3 engenders the formation of CuSe2 at the ultrathin interface. The γ−In2Se3/CuO heterojunctions exhibits maximum possible conduction and valence band offsets of values 0.47 and 0.96 eV, respectively. The dielectric spectra displays two dielectric resonance peaks at 2.96 and 1.78 eV. In addition, analyses of the optical conductivity spectra revealed accurate drift mobility and plasmon frequency values of 31.31 cm2/Vs and 1.5 GHz, respectively. The ability of the device to control the signal propagation at gigahertz level was experimentally tested by the impedance spectroscopy technique which proofed the ability of the device to behave as bandpass filters of notch frequency of 1.49 GHz. The γ−In2Se3/CuO heterojunction devices are also observed to display terahertz cutoff frequency values of ∽24 THz in the IR range of incident photon energy and ∽193 THz in the ultraviolet light range. The nonlinear optical performance of the device nominates it for use as terahertz/gigahertz band filters.|
