The dependence of as a function of the perimeter to area ratio for passivated and unpassivated diodes. A bulk value of was extrapolated and a surface resistivity of 7 and was measured for unpassivated and silicon dioxide passivated cases, respectively.
as a function of temperature. The diffusion-limited activation energy is calculated as 58.4 meV, corresponding to a cutoff wavelength of , and agrees closely with the ETBM designed cutoff of 57.5 meV.
Measured device quantum efficiency, demonstrating an optical 0% cutoff energy of 69.5 meV or cutoff wavelength of . The inset shows the normalized, to zero bias values, integrated response and differential resistance-area product as a function of reverse bias. Both quantities increase, to a point, at under slight reverse bias and can result in increased detectivity.
The measured detectivity demonstrated a sharp cutoff of only 17 meV at 77 K, compared to thermal broadening of 13.3 meV. The peak detectivity was at under zero bias and a 300 K, field of view.
