Abstract
Although HgCdTe imagers are a well-established technology, photodetectors fabricated using the same process still yield a large variation in their performance characteristics, largely stemming from hard-to-control pecu- liarities at the interface between the surface passivation and the active region of each photodiode. This work investigates the dark current characteristics of long-wave IR (cutoff wavelength of 10um) Hg0.774Cd0.226Te mesa photodiodes, which have been passivated with a CdTe film. We use a 2-D model of a p-on-n device structure to study how interface states and Cadmium diffusion at the passivation interface can influence the photodiode dark current.
