Performance of quantum well infrared photodetector (QWIP) device parameters such as detector cutoff wavelength and the dark current density depend strongly on the quality and the control of the epitaxy material growth. In this work, we report on a methodology to precisely control these critical material parameters for long wavelength infrared (LWIR) GaAs/AlGaAs QWIP epi wafers grown by multi-wafer production Molecular beam epitaxy (MBE). Critical growth parameters such as quantum well (QW) thickness, AlGaAs composition and QW doping level are discussed.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for 2018 presentations, with transcripts for prior recordings added daily.
