Title: Wide Bandgap Gallium Phosphide Detectors
Agency: DOE
Contract: DE-FG02-12ER86524
Award Amount: $150,000.00
 

Abstract:

Zipton Labs LLC will demonstrate the feasibility of avalanche photodiodes made from gallium phosphide grown on silicon virtual substrates. To increase material quality and decrease dark-current noise, gettering will be performed on the substrate and epilayer. The photodetectors will give superior UV quantum efficiencies to that of UV-sensitized silicon photodiodes at a price point much lower than other wider bandgap alternatives.
