Paper Abstract

High Density Vertically Integrated Photodiodes (HDVIP) MWIR detectors were fabricated in LPE-grown Mercury Cadmium Telluride material. Devices were fabricated with two different acceptor level concentrations. The low doped n-region was held at a single concentration but the dimensions are tailored to simultaneously maintain high quantum efficiency while minimizing dark current and 1/f noise. Since this study target was for operating at high temperatures, detector I-V data was collected between 120 K and 280 K for I-Vs and 180 to 280 K for noise to understand current mechanisms that limit device performance at these elevated temperatures. Noise as a function of frequency has also been collected over the same temperature range. 1/f noise has also been modeled for MWIR detectors as a function of temperature and will be covered.
