Paper Abstract

In this paper, a new quantum-well IR photodetector based on bound-to-miniband transitions in a GaAs/InGaP quantum well with GaAs/AlGaAs short superlattice barriers is presented and compared with the conventional GaAs/InGaP QWIPs. Results of the theoretical calculations of the detector parameters and the preliminary fabrication results of an embedded-well to miniband GaAs/InGaP/AlGaAs quantum well/superlattice detector are presented. The advantages of the proposed design include improvement of the material quality, ability to adjust the peak wavelength in 8 to 12 micrometers range, and in the lower dark current.
