Paper Abstract

A far-infrared photodetector based on twenty layers of self-assembled InAs/GaAs quantum dot superlattices is fabricated. Measurements by Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy at 77 K reveal that the response of the device is in the range of 9 to 16.3 μm, with a peak absorption wavelength near 13.2 μm (756 cm–1). The electrical characteristic of the device's current-voltage response is 63 μA at –1-V bias voltage when a 1-cd light source is at 15-cm distance.
