We have fabricated and characterized ultrafast metal–semiconductor–metal (MSM) photodetectors integrated with metal–semiconductor–field-effect-transistors (MESFETs) integrated in coplanar strip lines in the GaN/AlN/SiC material system. We recorded electrical transients of the single photodetector as short as 0.9 ps wide by optoelectric pump–probe measurements using 360-nm-wavelength and 100-fs-duration laser pulses. Electric photoresponse transients of the photodetector with 6-mV peak amplitude were amplified by the MESFET, resulting in 4-ps-wide and 35-mV peak amplitude signals. This monolithically integrated optoelectronic circuit is presented as a potential candidate for high-speed ultraviolet optoelectronics [less ▲]

We have fabricated and characterized metal–semiconductor–metal (MSM) photodetectors based on lowtemperature-grown GaAs with alloyed (i.e., ohmic-type) contacts. The annealed contacts optimize the electric field distribution inside the photodetector structure which results in an up-to-200% responsivity increase of the devices, compared to conventional MSM detectors with standard nonalloyed (Schottky-type) metallization fabricated on identical material. The improved MSM device with alloyed contacts shows more than three times larger output amplitude at illumination with a 100-fs Ti : sapphire laser, compared to the nonalloyed devices, without degradation of detector speed.

We have fabricated and characterized ultrafast metal–semiconductor–metal (MSM) photodetectors with recessed electrodes, based on low-temperature-grown GaAs. The new recessed-electrode MSM geometry led to an improved electric-field distribution inside the photodetector structure and resulted in a 25% breakdown voltage and sensitivity increase with simultaneous four-fold reduction of capacitance, as compared to the identical MSM devices with planar electrodes. Time-resolved studies performed using 100-fs-duration laser pulses showed that recessed-electrode MSMs exhibited 1.0-ps-wide photoresponse transients with no slow after-pulse tails and their photoresponse time was 0.9 ps. The improved transient photoresponse parameters are the main advantages of the recessed-electrode geometry. [less ▲]

We demonstrate low-temperature (LT)-grown GaAs photodetectors transferred on flexible polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plastic substrates. The LT-GaAs layer was patterned into 20 20 m2 chips, which after placing on the PET substrates were integrated with coplanar strip transmission lines. The devices exhibit low dark currents ( 2 10 8 A), subpicosecond photoresponse time, and signal amplitudes up to 0.9 V at the bias voltage of 80 V and under laser beam excitation power of 8 mW at 810-nm wavelength. At the highest bias ( 80 V) level, an increase of the response time (up to 1.3 ps) was observed and attributed to the influence of heating effects due to low thermal conductivity of PET. Our LT-GaAs-on-PET photodetectors withstand hundredfold mechanical bending of the substrate and are intended for applications in hybrid optoelectronic circuits fabricated on noncrystalline substrates, in terahertz imaging, and in biology-related current-excitation tests.

The spectral responsivity of an InAlAs–InGaAs metal–semiconductor–metal diode above a two-dimensional electron gas (2DEG) is investigated as a function of the applied bias. At low voltages, only the InAlAs layer above the 2DEG contributes to the photocurrent, while the InGaAs channel layer is activated at higher bias. This results in a voltage-dependent spectral response of the photodetector. The ratio of the responsivities at 1300 and 850 nm changes from 0.03- at 1-V to 0.44- at 1.6-V bias. This property makes the device a candidate suitable to detect and to separate optical information originated both from the GaAs (850 nm) and in the InGaAs (1300, 1550 nm)-based optoelectronic technology.

The optoelectronic dc and RF behavior of an InAlAs–InGaAs optically controlled field-effect transistor based on a high electron mobility transistor layer structure is investigated at 1.3- um wavelength light. The device is backside-illuminated to increase the responsivity. A transistor with 0.3-u m gate length and an active area of 50 x 50 u m2 exhibits a responsivity of 235 A/W, at 11- W incident optical power. The photoconductive response is higher than for an metal–semiconductor–metal photodetector with the same InGaAs absorption layer thickness up to 10 GHz. [less ▲]
