22 July 1998 Quantum well infrared photodetector performance parameters vs. binding energy
Author Affiliations +
We describe here a study of Mini-Band Transport (MBT) Quantum Well Infrared Photodetector (QWIP) samples in which the binding energy of photoexcited electrons is systematically varied. Each sample has been characterized electrically and radiometrically. Results are reported for variation of absorption spectra, spectral response, IV characteristics, blackbody responsivity, detector noise, and detectivity vs. binding energy for dark current limited mode of operation.
