Paper Abstract

Room-temperature Ga0.82 InO.18As0.17Sb0.83/GaSb photodiodes have been fabricated for use at wavelengths to 2.3μpm. Back-illuminated heterojunction p-n photodiodes show high external quantum efficiency (65%) for wavelengths between 1.8 and 2.3 μm. Front-illuminated pin homojunction photodiodes have an impulse response of 110 ps and respond to pseudorandom modulation at rates as high as 4 Gbit/s. Double heterostructure Ga0.841n0.16As0.15Sb0.85/A10.34Ga0.66As0.04Sb0.96 lasers have pulsed threshold current densities as low as 3.5 kA/cm2 at room temperature and operate cw at temperatures of up to 235K.
