Abstract: Al nanocrystals (nc-Al) embedded in AlN thin films have been synthesized by rf magnetron sputtering. The influence of ultraviolet (UV) illumination on electrical characteristics of the nc-Al/AlN thin film system has been investigated. It is shown that the UV illumination could lead to a random change in the conductance of the thin film system. The change in the conductance is attributed to the charge trapping and detrapping in the nc-Al due to the UV illumination.
