D06–Photoresponse uniformity in planar InP/InGaAs avalanche photodiodes

Walker A. W., Pitts O. J.

 Numerical simulation of the electric field distribution and photocurrent response of a planar InP/InGaAs avalanche photodiode is presented as a function of varying multiplication width. The Zn dopant diffusion front is obtained by numerically simulating the diffusion process. The simulation results indicate that while a local peak value of the electric field is observed near […]
