Abstract
The barrier enhanced InAs/GaSb long wavelength photodetectors were designed and demonstrated in this paper. A PBIN detector with an electron barrier inserted between P type contactor and absorption region show significantly improved electrical performances compared to a PIN structure. The RmaxA product of the PBIN detector was measured to be 104 Ωcm2 at 80K and 7360 Ωcm2 at 50K. Temperature dependent measurements show that the tunneling currents dominate the dark current below 50K, the generation-recombination (GR) currents dominate from 50K to 90K, and the diffusion current dominate over 90K. The PBIN structure benefits from a lower electric field in the absorption region and therefore, suppressed the tunnel currents and GR currents. To improve the quantum efficiency, Be-doping was employed to convert the conductivity of the long wavelength SL structure, the PN junction moves away from the B-I hetrostructure to the π-N interface, which loses the barrier effect. Therefore, the hole barrier was needed to form a PBπBN structure. In this paper, hole barrier was designed without Al element to form a PBπBN structure. The RmaxA product of the PBπBN detector was measured to be 77 Ωcm2 and the dark current density under -0.05V bias was measured to be 8.8×10-4A/cm2 at 80K. The peak current responsivity at 9.8 μm was 2.15A/W and the quantum efficiency was 26.7%.
