Example text

Summarizing, it can be concluded that carrier diffusion should be avoided in order to obtain fast photodetectors. One possibility is to use light with Light incidence Photocurrent Drift Diffusion Time Fig. 8. 2 Important Models for Photodetectors 23 photocurrent Drift Diffusion log(Frequency) Fig. 9. , with a large absorption coefficient in Si in order to avoid photogeneration in Region 2 (see Fig. 7). Another possibility can be the choice of a semiconductor with larger absorption coefficients. Where neither of these measures is possible, a larger reverse voltage should be applied across the photodiode or the doping concentration in the photodiode should be reduced, in order to obtain a thicker space-charge region.

10. The influence of carrier diffusion on the dynamical quantum efficiency of photodetectors at high data rates drift region before the light intensity is reduced again. The diffusion tails of the photocurrent of consecutive light pulses overlap (Fig. 10). The photocurrent for a sine-wave light modulation reduces similarly at high frequencies (see Fig. 9). It should be mentioned explicitly that the dynamical quantum efficiency depends on the frequency or data rate. The higher both these are, the smaller the dynamical quantum efficiency becomes until the minimum is reached.

31) A much slower contribution to the photocurrent usually results from carriers being generated in the second diffusion region (see Fig. 7), because the holes have to diffuse a much longer distance than dp from this region 2 to the space-charge region. The hole diffusion time through 10 µm of silicon is 40 ns whereas the electron diffusion time over the same distance is approximately 8 ns. The resulting shape of the photocurrent shown in Fig. 8 is characteristic of the diffusion of carriers from the second region into the space-charge region.
