Abstract:

THE RECENTLY INVENTED TYPE II STRAINED LAYER SUPERLATTICES MADE OF GaInSb/InAs HAVE SHOWN GREAT PROMISE AS IR DETECTORS. MADE OF PERIODS OF MATERIALS EACH ONLY A FEW ATOMS THICK. IT HAS SEVERAL DESIRABLE OPTICAL AND TRANSPORT PROPERTIES WHICH WOUDL BECOME EVEN MORE IMPORTANT FOR VLWIR (>12um) APPLICATIONS. TO EXPLORE THE POTENTIAL OF THIS MATERIAL SYSTEM, WE PROPOSE TO INVESTIGATE ITS USE FOR DETECTOR DEVICE APPLICATIONS AND DEMONSTRATE THE PREDICTED PROPERTIES. SAMPLES WILL BE FABRICATED IN A STATE-OF-THE-ART MBE SYSTEM USING AUTOMATED PROCESS CONTROL. WE PLAN TO STUDY THEIR DOPANT BEHAVIOR AND DETECTOR CHARACTERISTICS IN A DIODE STRUCTURE.
