SiC Avalanche Photodiodes and Arrays, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

SiC Avalanche Photodiodes and Arrays, Phase I
Aymont Technology, Inc. (Aymont) will demonstrate the feasibility of SiC p-i-n avalanche photodiodes (APD) arrays. Aymont will demonstrate 4 x 4 arrays of 2 mm2 APDs for visible-blind high-sensitivity UV detection. These arrays will exhibit high gain (10^6), high quantum efficiency (peak < 50%), and high speed (). They will demonstrate scalability, allowing for larger arrays (20 x 20) in Phase 2. They will give nearly 2x the quantum efficiency of other solid state solutions such as Si at UV wavelengths. More »
