Title

GalnNAs Resonant-Cavity-Enhanced Photodetector Operating At 1.3 ?m

Abstract

We demonstrate a GaAs-based p-i-n resonant-cavity-enhanced (RCE) GalnNAs photodetector operating near 1.3 µm. The device design was optimized using a transfer matrix method and experimental absorption spectra obtained from p-i-n structures grown without a resonant cavity. The RCE photodetector was fabricated in a single growth step by using GaAs/AlAs distributed Bragg reflectors for the top and bottom mirrors. A 72% quantum efficiency was obtained with a full width at half maximum of 11 nm. © 1999 American Institute of Physics.
