Abstract:

During the above-noted period of this Final Technical Report, the following salient milestones were reached 1 Introduced and demonstrated the concept of injecting electrons into the quantum dot OD active infra-red absorbing region from bracketing doped contact layers to suppress unwanted dark current leaving the QD region undoped 2 Introduced and demonstrated the benefits of the concepts of a strain-relieving OD capping layers, b current blocking layers, and c lateral potential confinement layer for tailoring the OD electronic response to the desired IR response 3 Demonstrated high performance ODIP devices in the mid and longwavelength IR regions 4 Demonstrated voltage-tunable mid and long IR dual wavelength ODIPs.
