Current isolating epitaxial buffer layers for high voltage photodiode array

2 Status Updates




Loading Importance Indicators... loading....


See full text

An array of photodiodes in series on a common semi-insulating substrate has a non-conductive buffer layer between the photodiodes and the semi-insulating substrate. The buffer layer reduces current injection leakage between the photodiodes of the array and allows optical energy to be converted to high voltage electrical energy.
