30 April 1981 Lifetime Scanning Measurements On Hg0.7Cd0.3Te By Population Modulation
Author Affiliations +
A contactless optical technique has been developed for the measurement of excess photogenerated carrier lifetime in Hg0.7Cd0.3Te in a raster scan mode. The technique consists of measuring the steady state mod-ulation AI in the transmitted intensity I of a probe beam (-11,a) < Eg) due to a modulated pump beam (Kw < Eg) incident on the same surface. The fractional change in the probe beam transmission AI/I is related to the excess carrier lifetime. Lifetimes in the 20 ns to 20 us range have been measured using pump photon fluxes on the order of 1018 photons/cm2-s.
