Post-growth spectral tuning of InGaAs/GaAs quantum dot infrared photodetectors

McKerracher, Ian Robert

Description

Infrared photodetectors are essential in many industries and modern applications require devices with enhanced capabilities. High-performance detectors can be used for spectroscopy in medicine and environmental monitoring. Imaging scenarios include the identification of military targets and predicting equipment failure. These thermal imaging systems benefit from multicolour photodetectors. For example, some heat-seeking missiles incorporate two-colour HgCdTe arrays to discern target...[Show more]
