Paper Abstract

We demonstrate the first long wavelength quantum well infrared photodetectors (QWIPs) using lattice matched n-doped In0.47As/InP and n-doped 1.3 micrometers InGaAsP/InP materials systems. The responsivity of In0.52Ga0.47As/InP detectors has been found to be larger than that for similar GaAs/AlxGa1 - xAs detectors. In addition we demonstrate the first p-doped In0.53Ga0.47As/InP QWIPs. This detector has the shortest wavelength response, (lambda) p equals 2.7 micrometers , ever achieved in a QWIP and operates at normal incidence.
