Paper Abstract

Planar heterojunctions were fabricated on mercury cadmium telluride layers grown by Molecular Beam Epitaxy. P-type (111)B Hgi_,Cd,Te having an x value gradually increasing to the surface have been grown. The sputtering technique has been used to form the junctions. For the first time, electrical and optical characterizations of a representative junction are presented in this report. The resistance-area product at zero bias and at 80 K is 2.4X103 ohm-cm 2 for x=0.27. The spectral response of this device shows that two junctions, one with x=0.27 and the other with x=0.33, exist. However, Responsivities as high as 7.2 A/W at 80 K were recorded due to the electrically reflecting boundary on the p-type surface.
