Paper Abstract

Structures with one-dimensional quantum objects in intermediate band are promising for their application in solar cells and photodetectors. We present analysis of dark current-voltage characteristics, photo-voltage decay and photo-voltage spectra for this structures in comparison with reference GaAs based structures. It has been shown that InGaAs quantum wires make a significant influence on J-V dependences and photo-voltage spectra. InGaAs QWRS are additional recombination centers and transitions between them dominated over by Shockley-Read-Hall recombination at low bias. The InGaAs/GaAs sample shows a significantly higher photo-voltage in the spectral range of 1.25-1.37 eV, as compared to a reference GaAs p-n junction, due to intermediate band transitions in the quantum wires.
