摘要: An infrared photodetector that contains a superlattice structure and a blocking barrier was investigated. The photodetector shows advantages including a low operating voltage (<0.7 V), wide detection bandwidth, flexible miniband engineering, and in particular, voltage-tunable spectral responsivity. The blocking barrier not only prohibits the dark current but also acts as a high-pass energy filter to tune the spectral responsivity. The zero background peak detectivity of our detector is 3.7x10(9) cm Hz(0.5)/W (9.7 mum) at -0.5 V and 2.2x10(10) cm Hz(0.5)/W (6.7 mum) at -0.1 V. Since the spectral responsivity at different biases is independent, temperature sensing is feasible by taking the ratio of the measured photocurrent at different biases. A demonstration of temperature sensing by using our superlattice infrared photodetector with a blocking barrier is also shown in this article. Those results show the superlattice is a simple and efficient structure for the design of a multicolor infrared photodetector. (C) 2002 American Institute of Physics.
