Abstract
The effects of detector series resistance on the electrooptical performance of infrared detectors are calculated by means of a simple diode model with a parallel photocurrent source. Calculations are performed for a number of variables, and series resistance is shown to be an important parameter in the design of photovoltaic detectors because it can limit operation in high performance design applications.
