Quantum-dot infrared photodetectors : a review

  title={Quantum-dot infrared photodetectors : a review},
  author={Adrienne D. Stiff-Roberts},
Quantum-dot infrared photodetectors (QDIPs) are positioned to become an important technology in the field of infrared (IR) detection, particularly for high-temperature, low-cost, high-yield detector arrays required for military applications. High-operating temperature (≥150 K) photodetectors reduce the cost of IR imaging systems by enabling cryogenic dewars and Stirling cooling systems to be replaced by thermo-electric coolers. QDIPs are well-suited for detecting mid-IR light at elevated… CONTINUE READING
