ABSTRACT
The room-temperature absorption and reflection spectra in the range of 5-100 µm (3-60 THz) for multilayer heterojunction interfacial work function internal photoemission (HEIWIP) GaAs/AlGaAs far-infrared (FIR) detectors are presented. Calculated results based on the free carrier absorption and interaction with optical phonons are found to be in good agreement with the experimental results. Experimental responsivity spectra demonstrate the expected maxima from the absorption measurements due to resonant cavity effects. It is shown that the resonance cavity architecture enhances the performance of the FIR HEIWIP detectors and further improvement is proposed through the use of n[sup ++] and p[sup ++] bottom contact layers or doped substrates.
