A new concept for a high-speed photodetector is described which promises very low noise with avalanche gain. The detector is constructed as an integrated circuit element in the heterojunction field-effect transistor technology and utilizes a unique n-n heterojunction interface formed by either metalorganic chemical vapor deposition or molecular beam epitaxy growth techniques. The degree of avalanching is controlled via an electrical third terminal.
