ABSTRACT
We report photocollection efficiency measurements of p+in GaAs/AlAs/GaAs diodes fabricated on films grown by molecular beam epitaxy. Both the zero-bias and bias-dependent photocollection characteristics can be explained by assuming that the band discontinuity between AlAs and GaAs is mostly accommodated in the valence band.
