Paper Abstract

In the present paper, we report the results of our investigation, which aims to upgrade the GaInAsSb-based photodiode heterostructure technology. The main requirements on GaInAsSb solid solutions from the viewpoint of near-infrared photodiode applications are considered. Such methods for decreasing a carrier concentration in the epitaxial layers of the solid solutions as doping with a donor impurity, the use of rare-earth element Yb, growth from lead containing melt are discussed. The possibility of decreasing the GaInAsSb band gap resulting in long- wavelength photosensitivity threshold shift is demonstrated. We have made GaInAsSb/GaAlAsSb photodiodes with the long- wavelength photosensitivity threshold of 2.4 micrometers . At -2V reverse bias a lowest dark current density is 3x10-3 A/cm2, and the quantum efficiency is 60-70% at (lambda)=2.0-2.1micrometers .
