Paper Abstract

We present on the experimental results of the NpnP optoelectronic switching device with a significant optical sensitivity. This structure consists of a novel fully depleted optical thyristor (DOT) with a bottom mirror layers. We measure the emission efficiency for various sizes and injected currents. This device shows 20 percent and 45 percent enhancement in switching voltage change and spontaneous emission efficiency, respectively, which is very important for the sensitivity and the low power consumption of DOT.
