Paper Abstract

We have successfully fabricated intersubband GaAs/AlGaAs quantum well infrared photodetectors grown on GaAs-on-Si substrate and evaluated their structural, electrical, and optical characteristics. We have found that the performance is comparable to a similar detector structure grown on a semi- insulating GaAs substrate. The results are promising for applications in the important 8 - 12 micrometer atmospheric window.
