The effect of diffusion on the impulse response of RCE detector

Abstract

We present a theory which demonstrates how the diffusion of photogenerated carriers affects the impulse response of a resonant-cavity enhanced photodetector (RCE). Analytic expressions for carrier densities and short-circuit current are derived, The theory indicates that diffusion introduces a significant tail in the temporal response of photodetectors. The… (More)
