The growth and fabrication of GaAlAsSb/GaSb avalanche photodiodes is discussed. The leakage current, gain, and uniformity of heterojunction, ion-implanted and Schottky-barrier structures are examined. In addition, the effect of the valence band spin orbit splitting upon avalanche noise is briefly discussed. It is shown that the prevalent problem of these devices is a high surface leakage current.
