Paper Abstract

An analytical mathematical model of the double heterojunction NpN bipolar phototransistor with abrupt heterojunctions in three terminal configuration is presented. The thermionic-filed emission and diffusion of injected carriers is considered and the Ebers-Moll type relations for the collector and emitter current are obtained. Several steady state characteristics of the phototransistor structure are calculated (optical gain, quantum efficiency, responsivity).
