Paper Abstract

A theoretical analysis of the Auger mechanism in a GaInAsSb infrared photovoltaic detector is reported. The considerations are carried out for near-room temperature and 2.5-µm wavelength. The results show that the Auger mechanism can be suppressed by optimizing the material parameters. Thus, the performance of such detectors can be improved.
