Paper Abstract

We discovered and explained a new effect--'Two Peak Effect' (TPE) in the spectral responses of a p-n heterojunction infrared detector. That means there is two spectral peaks in only one p- n junction. This is a universal and important effect in semiconductor heterojunctions. In this paper, we further presented a new two color detector and its array on the basis of TPE, such as for HgCdTe, PbSnTe, etc. This new multicolor device structure has more advantages and applications than ordinary ones.
