Short-wave infrared (SWIR) detectors and emitters have a high potential value in several fields of applications, including the internet of things (IoT) and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), gas sensing. Indium Gallium Arsenide (InGaAs) photodetectors are widely used in the SWIR region of 1–3 μm; however, they only capture a part of the region due to a cut-off wavelength of 1.7 μm. This study presents an InAs p-i-n photodetector grown on a GaAs substrate (001) by inserting 730-nm thick InxAl1−xAs graded and AlAs buffer layers between the InAs layer and the GaAs substrate. At room temperature, the fabricated InAs photodetector operated in an infrared range of approximately 1.5–4 μm and its detectivity (D*) was 1.65 × 108 cm · Hz1/2 · W−1 at 3.3 μm. To demonstrate performance, the Sherlock Holmes mapping images were obtained using the photodetector at room temperature. Acesse aqui o artigo na íntegra.
