We have generated electrical pulses of only 480 fs duration by photoconductive switching in CdTe grown by ultraviolet-enhanced metalorganic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD). In addition to the extremely fast switching times, MOCVD CdTe also exhibits a high mobility of 180 cm2/V s and can be grown on almost any substrate, making it ideal for integration into existing circuits and devices.
