Paper Abstract

Intersubband absorption has been measured in a 50 period superlattice composed 71 Å GaAs wells separated by 30 Å barriers of AlAs. The peak absorption was observed at 1224 cm-1 corresponding to 8.2 μm. The absorbed oscillation strength was extremely large in agree-ment with theory. Using a different superlattice having AlxGal-xAs barriers, we fabricated a detector sensitive to 10 μm infrared radiation. It had a responsivity of R= 0.52 A/W, and a narrow band spectral response of Δλ/λ = 10%.
