Paper Abstract

We have successfully grown InGaAs detectors on the silicon substrate using the special technique of selective epitaxy. Small diameter (50 micrometers ) selective area depositions of In0.5Ga0.5As on silicon have exhibited a lower dislocation density, and hence, better electrical performance. These InGaAs detectors are grown by Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE). The final goal is to monolithically integrate InGaAs detectors with a silicon CMOS switched capacitor integrator. We have designed a CMOS switched-capacitor integrator (SCI) to realize a linear current-to-voltage conversion over a wide voltage range (-5 to +5 V) with low noise characteristics. The SCI circuit consists of an operational amplifier with a feedback capacitor and a reset switch. The SCI circuit uses +/- 5 V dual power supply and one -5 to +5 V voltage pulse generator. The circuit was simulated using PSPICE and the chip layout was done with the Mentor Graphics.
