Abstract: We propose and demonstrate a novel device structure of resonant cavity-enhanced photodetector (RCE-PD). The new RCE-PD structure consists of a bottom distributed Bragg reflector (DBR), a cavity with InGaAs multiple quantum wells (MQWs) for light absorption and a top mirror of sub-wavelength grating. By changing the fill factor of the 2-D grating, the effective cavity length of RCE-PDs can be varied so the resonant wavelength can be selected post growth. Accordingly, we can fabricate an array of PDs on a single chip, on which every PD aims for a specific wavelength. (C) 2012 Optical Society of America
