Abstract
Quantum cascade detectors (QCDs) are photovoltaic devices: they have a built in asymmetric conduction band potential formed by energy band engineering design, which allows for biasless operation. In this work, we focus on the very long wave infrared (VLWIR) quantum cascade photodectors involving energy band engineering, material technology, and devices physics. Targeting the common applications, we demonstrate a series of VLWIR QCDs from 14 to 20μm. The dark current density under 1.1×10-11 Acm-2 and the detectivity above 1×1011 cmHz1/2W-1 is achieved. Many of them exhibit high performance and give a cheerful prospect for the practical application in the near future.
