Paper Abstract

The p+-cap layer of InP together with 80 nm of undoped (Nb equals 5 1014 cm-3) assist layer of InP for the first time were used to increase the Schottky barrier height (up to 0.73 e.V.) on GaInAs and to create high speed MSM photodetectors on it. The average dark current density is 1.6 10-4 A/cm2 -- the lowest known value on the GaInAs semiconductor material. A rise time of 37 ps for the impulse response at (lambda) equals 1.3 micrometers was measured for a MSM diode with 2 micrometers fingers and 2 micrometers gaps and an active area of 30 X 30 micrometers 2.
