Photodetection in the ultraviolet (UV) region has drawn extensive attention owing to its various applications in industrial, environmental, and even biological fields. In this letter, we report on the morphological and electro-optical characteristics of continuous thin metal film Ni 2 Si/4H-SiC photodiodes properly designed for the realization of an extremely compact digital sensor suited to measure the total sun UV radiation for environmental UV light monitoring.
