By Michael A. Stroscio, Mitra Dutta

This quantity offers invaluable summaries on many facets of complex semiconductor heterostructures and highlights the good number of semiconductor heterostructures that has emerged on the grounds that their unique notion. As exemplified via the chapters during this e-book, fresh growth on complex semiconductor heterostructures spans a actually impressive diversity of clinical fields with an linked range of purposes. a few of these purposes will definitely revolutionize seriously very important features of contemporary know-how. on the center of those advances is the facility to layout and regulate the houses of semiconductor units at the nanoscale. for instance, the intersubband lasers mentioned during this booklet have a large diversity of formerly unobtainable features and linked functions as end result of the the nanoscale dimensional keep an eye on of the underlying semiconductor heterostructures. As this publication illustrates, an marvelous number of heterostructures could be fabricated with present expertise; the possibly common use of layered quantum dots fabricated with nanoscale precision in organic purposes opens up fascinating advances in medication. moreover, many extra first-class examples of the notable effect being made by using semiconductor heterostructures are given. The summaries during this quantity supply well timed insights into what we all know now approximately chosen components of complex semiconductor heterostructures and in addition supply foundations for additional advancements.

Example text

The lateral QDIP, which operates much like a field-effecttransistor, conducts photocurrent through lateral transport of carriers across a high-mobility channel. AlGaAs barriers, which provide this high-mobility channel, are also necessary to modulation-dope the quantum dots. Since the major con­ tributions to the dark current in lateral QDIPs are due to interdot tunneling and hopping conduction, these devices have demonstrated lower dark currents and higher operating temperatures than vertical QDIPs.

Photon detectors must be cooled in this way because the energy corresponding to infrared light is so small that the dark current generated at higher temperatures easily drowns any real signal created by the detector. The advan­ tages and disadvantages of three types of photon detectors; mercury cadmium telluride detectors, 2 7 - 2 9 quantum well infrared photodetectors, 3 0 - 3 3 and quantum dot infrared photodetectors, 1 - 1 8 are discussed below. Mercury cadmium telluride (MCT) detectors are intrinsic, bulk material detectors, which means they detect IR light corresponding to the energy gap of the semiconductor.
