We describe a relationship between the noise characterization and activation energy of InAs/GaSb superlattice MidWavelength-Infrared photodiodes for different passivation materials applied to the device. The noise measurements exhibited a frequency dependent plateau (i.e. 1/f-noise characteristic) for unpassivated as well as Si3N4 passivated samples whereas 1/f-type low noise suppression (i.e. frequency independent plateau) with a noise current reduction of more than one order of magnitude was observed for SiO2 passivation. For reverse bias values below -0.15V, the classical Schottky-noise calculation alone did not appear to describe the noise mechanism in a SL noise behavior, which shows a divergence between theoretically and experimentally determined noise values. We identify that, the additional noise appears, with and without passivation, at the surface activation energy of < 60 meV and is inversely proportional to the reverse bias. This is believed to be caused by the surface dangling-bonds (as well as surface states) whose response is controlled by the applied reverse bias. The calculated noise characteristics showed a good agreement with the experimental data.

The authors describe the noise characterization of a mid-wavelength-infrared (MWIR) photodiode based on indium arsenide and gallium antimonide (InAs/GaSb) superlattice (SL), addressing the influence of different passivation layers applied to the surface of the device. The MWIR InAs/GaSb SL design structure is based on p-i-n configuration grown by the molecular beam epitaxy on a (001) n-GaSb substrate. The SiO2-passivated SL photodiodes demonstrated a Schottky-limited noise up to a bias voltage of -0.1 V whe...
Low dark current N structure superlattice MWIR photodetectors
Salihoglu, Omer; Muti, Abdullah; Turan, Raşit; ERGÜN, YÜKSEL; AYDINLI, ATİLLA (2014-05-08)
Commercially available read out integrated circuits (ROICs) require the FPA to have high dynamic resistance area product at zero bias (R(0)A) which is directly related to dark current of the detector. Dark current arises from bulk and surface contributions. Recent band structure engineering studies significantly suppressed the bulk contribution of the type-II superlattice infrared photodetectors (N structure, M structure, W structure). In this letter, we will present improved dark current results for unipol...
Hall mobility and photoconductivity in TlGaSeS crystals
Qasrawi, A. F.; Hasanlı, Nızamı (2013-01-14)
In this work, the fundamental properties of the TlGaSeS single crystals are investigated by means of temperature dependent electrical resistivity and Hall mobility. The crystal photo-responsibility as function of illumination intensity and temperature is also tested in the temperature range of 350-160 K. The study allowed the determination of acceptor centers as 230 and 450 meV below and above 260 K, and recombination centers as 181, 363, and 10 meV at low, moderate, and high temperatures, respectively. Whi...

The authors present a novel ambipolar organic filed-effect transistors (OFETs) composed of a hybrid dielectric thin film of Ta2O5: PMMA nanocomposite material, and solution processed poly(selenophene, benzotriazole and dialkoxy substituted [1,2-b: 4, 5-b'] dithiophene (P-SBTBDT)-based organic semiconducting material as the active layer of the device. We find that the Ta2O5: PMMA insulator shows n-type conduction character, and its combination with the p-type P-SBTBDT organic semiconductor leads to an ambipo...

Ulusan, Hasan; Gharehbaghi, Kaveh; Zorlu, Ozge; Muhtaroglu, Ali; Külah, Haluk (2013-12-01)
This paper presents a fully-integrated self-powered interface circuit for efficient rectification of the signals generated by vibration based low-voltage electromagnetic (EM) energy harvesters. The circuit utilizes an improved AC/DC doubler structure with active diodes to minimize the forward bias voltage drop for enhancing the rectifier efficiency. The comparators in the active diodes are powered internally by another passive AC/DC doubler with diode connected transistors. The performance is maximized thro...
