  3. Adaptive Quantum-Dot Photodetectors with Bias-Tunable Barriers

    SBC: ESENSORS INC.            Topic: AF08BT02

    The proposed research program focuses on design, fabrication, and characterization of quantum-dot infrared photodetectors (QDIPs) which features bias-tunable parameters, including the spectral response, optical gain, and operating time. Wide variations of detector parameters can be realized through the bias-tunable potential barriers surrounding quantum dots. Changes in bias will transform the ba ...
