Paper Abstract

It has been known that in BIB type, Si:As Mid-IR detectors the internal gain can be strongly related to the internal noise. We prove that by modifying the internal gain it is possible to increase the signal-to-noise ratio to a level which is consistent with poissonian statistics only.
