IR quantum dot detectors with miniband tunnel extraction

Abstract

By combining band gap engineering with the self-organised growth of quantum dots we present a scheme of adjusting the mid-infrared absorption properties to desired energy transitions in quantum dot based photodetectors (QDIPs). Embedding of the self organised InAs quantum dots into an AlAs/GaAs superlattice enables us to tune the optical transition energy… (More)
