Advances in Infrared Photodetectors by Sarath D. Gunapala, David R. Rhiger and Chennupati Jagadish

By Sarath D. Gunapala, David R. Rhiger and Chennupati Jagadish (Eds.)

For the reason that its inception in 1966, the sequence of numbered volumes often called Semiconductors and Semimetals has extraordinary itself in the course of the cautious number of recognized authors, editors, and individuals. The "Willardson and Beer" sequence, because it is celebrated, has succeeded in publishing quite a few landmark volumes and chapters. not just did lots of those volumes make an influence on the time in their e-book, yet they remain well-cited years after their unique unencumber. lately, Professor Eicke R. Weber of the collage of California at Berkeley joined as a co-editor of the sequence. Professor Weber, a well known specialist within the box of semiconductor fabrics, will extra give a contribution to carrying on with the sequence' culture of publishing well timed, hugely correct, and long-impacting volumes. many of the fresh volumes, reminiscent of Hydrogen in Semiconductors, Imperfections in III/V fabrics, Epitaxial Microstructures, High-Speed Heterostructure units, Oxygen in Silicon, and others promise that this custom might be maintained or even increased. Reflecting the really interdisciplinary nature of the sector that the sequence covers, the volumes in Semiconductors and Semimetals were and may remain of significant curiosity to physicists, chemists, fabrics scientists, and gadget engineers in smooth industry.Written and edited by means of the world over popular expertsRelevent to a large readership: physicists, chemists, fabrics scientists, and equipment engineers in academia, clinical laboratories and sleek undefined.

9 shows the detailed HH1 band structure for a (14,7)-InAs/GaSb superlattice and a (8,6)-InAs/GaSb superlattice, which are used in LWIR and MWIR detector structures, respectively. We note that the dispersion of the MWIR superlattice is much stronger than the LWIR superlattice; the MWIR HH1 effective mass is ∼20 times smaller than that for the LWIR superlattice. Even for the LWIR superlattice, a closer look at the HH1 band structure reveals that the hole velocity may not be as low as first appeared.

Effective masses and transport Another prominent feature of the band structure shown in Fig. 6 is that the HH1 band is nearly dispersionless along the growth direction. Both the dispersionless HH1 band structure and the increased electron effective mass contribute to a larger joint density of states (JDOS). This results in a larger absorption coefficient, which, to first order, is directly proportional to the JDOS. This helps to compensate for the small optimal matrix element disadvantage inherent in type-II superlattices.

22). Based on measurement of dark current density dependence on device area/perimeter ratio, we attribute the higher dark current to detector mesa sidewall surface leakage current. The bottom panel of Fig. 4 V. The noise spectra are relatively flat from 1 Hz to 5 kHz, showing the absence of 1/f noise in this device. The shot noise in the device increases with an increase of the applied bias/current, as can be seen clearly from the noise spectral density at frequencies higher than 1 kHz; however, the general “flatness” of the noise spectra does not change with bias, and no onset of 1/f noise is observed.
