Abstract:

The report is on PbSnTe homo- and heterojunction photodiodes which are sensitive to the 8-14 microns portion of the IR spectrum and operable above 77 K. The results cover three main areas 1 Single element 10.6 microns photodiodes with frequency response in excess of 1 GHz for laser radar and communication systems 2 Low frequency-high D arrays 3 Dielectric constant measurements in the depletion region of p-n diodes to determine the upper limit on the frequency response of PbSnTe detectors.
