Interfacial misfit arrays were embedded within two avalanche photodiode (APD) structures. This allowed GaSb absorption layers to be combined with wide-bandgap multiplication regions, consisting of GaAs and AlGaAs, respectively. The GaAs APD represents the simplest case. The AlGaAs APD shows reduced dark currents of 5.07 Acm−2 at 90% of the breakdown voltage, and values for effective below 0.2. Random-path-length modeled excess noise is compared with experimental data, for both samples. The designs could be developed further, allowing operation to be extended to longer wavelengths, using other established absorber materials which are lattice matched to GaSb.
