Active surface passivation for SWIR InGaAs photodetectors
Necati, Işık; Kocaman, Serdar; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2022-1)
This thesis work offers a new method for improving one of the performance parameters in infrared photodetector technology. This method involves suppressing the surface dark current by utilizing a constant E-field on the surface of the photodetector. By interrupting the channel formation on the surface, a significant improvement in the generation-recombination (GR) dark current component is observed. Relatively minor improvements on differential resistance and the shunt component of the dark current are note...
Optimization of Mesa Structured InGaAs Based Photodiode Arrays
Dolas, M. Halit; Çırçır, Kübra; Kocaman, Serdar (2017-04-13)
We design lattice matched InP/In0.53Ga0.47As mesa structured heterojunction p-n photodiodes with a novel passivation methodology based on a fully depleted thin p-InP layer. Mesa-structured detectors are targeted due to their competitive advantages for applications such as multicolor/hyperspectral imaging. Test detector pixels with different perimeter/area ratios are fabricated with and without etching thin InP passivation layer between pixels in order to comparatively examine passivating behavior. I-V chara...
Improvement of light emission from Tb-doped Si-based MOS-LED using excess Si in the oxide layer
Kulakci, Mustafa; Turan, Raşit (2013-05-01)
The fabrication of efficient silicon-based Light Emitting Devices (LEDs) is extremely important for the integration of photonic and electronic components on the same Si platform. In this paper, we report on the room temperature electroluminescence properties of Tb-doped MOS-LED devices with an active layer of SiO2 and Si-rich SiOx produced using the magnetron co-sputtering technique. The electroluminescence properties of both types of devices were studied as a function of processing conditions and material ...
Utilization of motor current based torque feedback to improve the transparency of haptic interfaces
Baser, Ozgur; Konukseven, Erhan İlhan (2012-06-01)
In this paper motor current based torque feedback compensator is utilized in actuator space together with a closed loop impedance control algorithm instead of model based compensator to improve the transparency performance of haptic interfaces; moreover, a novel transparency evaluation metric is developed to evaluate the transparency performance of these devices. The proposed control algorithm is experimentally tested on a 1 DOF haptic device by employing a low-cost current sensor. It is also tested on a MA...
Fully Depleted InP Nano-Layer for In-Device Passivation of InGaAs SWIR Detectors
Dolas, M. Halit; Kocaman, Serdar (2017-12-01)
We designed a p-n InGaAs/InP heterojunction photodiode with a novel passivation approach that employs a thin and fully depleted in-device (embedded in the p-n structure) p-InP layer. We comparatively characterized mesa-type detector pixels and experimentally observed expected passivating behavior. Characterization results under illumination indicated that fully depleted p-InP layer increases photo-current as well due to increasing device active area. Dark current analysis of detector pixels with different a...
