This work describes the optical, morphological and structural characterizations of graphene oxide (GO) layers grown by drop casting and annealing process. UV-vis optical measurement shows that the values of direct and indirect optical gap energy of the GO film are 3.89 eV and 3.21 eV, respectively. The graphene oxide (GO) layer has been placed in the metal/ interlayer /semiconductor (MIS) diodes (total 17 devices) on p-Si wafers. The graphene oxide diodes give a better barrier height enhancement as compared with the conventional diodes. The value of homogeneous barrier height for Al/GO/p-Si MIS junctions was extracted as 0.74 eV. The diodes were also investigated under 300 watt light illumination for photovoltaic applications. Additionally, interfacial properties of the MIS diode with GO interlayer were determined. It has been seen that the capacitance of the device changes as a function of gate voltage and signal frequency from the capacitance-frequency measurements. It has also been reported that the interfacial trap charges reduce the capacitance with increasing frequency values.
