Paper Abstract

This paper presents the results of the first CO2 laser heterodyne measurements performed on boron implanted n+-p Hg0.8Cd0.2Te photodiodes. The measured data shows that this type of device structure is capable, of achieving bandwidths -20 of approximately 475 to 725 MHz and noise equivalent powers of 3.2 x 10-20 at 77 K and 1.0 x 10-19 W/Hz at 145 K.
