Wide Bandgap Gallium Phosphide Detectors
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.
