Paper Abstract

In this paper, different structures of high-speed infrared (IR) sensors based on amorphous silicon germanium and amorphous silicon hetero-structures have been successfully developed on crystalline silicon substrates. Experimental results of these developed structures exhibit a superior device performance to that of a traditional pin amorphous photo-sensor prepared on a glass substrate, especially significant improvements in the rise time from 465 (microsecond(s) ) to 195 (microsecond(s) ), and the dark current from 50 ((mu) A) to 3.3 ((mu) A) for 5 (V) reverse bias.
