Introduction Addressed to both students as a learning text and scientists/engineers as a reference, this book discusses the physics and applications of quantum-well infrared photodetectors (QWIPs). It is assumed that the reader has a basic background in quantum mechanics, solid-state physics, and semiconductor devices. With the new technology, these impedances can be eliminated and a new era of infrared imaging is in sight. This book is designed to give a systematic description on the underlying physics of the new detectors and other issues related to infrared managing."--BOOK JACKET. Addressed to both students as a learning text and scientists/engineers as a reference, this book discusses the physics and applications of quantum-well infrared photodetectors (QWIPs). It is assumed that the reader has a basic background in quantum mechanics, solid-state physics, and semiconductor devices.   Quantum Well Infrared Photodetectors by Harald Schneider, , available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide.3/5(1).

  With the new technology, these impedances can be eliminated and a new era of infrared imaging is in sight. This book is designed to give a systematic description on the underlying physics of the new detectors and other issues related to infrared imaging. The extensive literature on quantum‐well infrared photodetectors(QWIPs)is reviewed. A detailed discussion is given on the device physics of the intersubband absorption and hot‐carrier transport processesfor individual detectors,as well as the high performance which . So far, the ‘king’ of infrared detectors has been the HgCdTe intrinsic photodetector (MCT). HgCdTe is the most studied semiconductor material for IR detectors and it is the standard against which all of other IR photon detectors are matched against. 2, 3, 4 It has very high quantum efficiency and detectivity: at 77 K, a reported quantum efficiency exceeding 70%. and a detectivity exceeding. Get this from a library! The physics of quantum well infrared photodetectors. [K K Choi] -- In the past, infrared imaging has been used exclusively for military applications. In fact, it can also be useful in a wide range of scientific and commercial applications. However, its wide spread.

In this chapter we shall discuss the basic physical processes as well as open technological problems related to the design and optimization of new-generation quantum-well infrared photodetectors. In particular, we shall focus on the development of efficient quantum devices for . A comparison with quantum well infrared photodetectors (QWIPs) is made. Select 9 - InAs/GaSb type II superlattices: A developing material system for third generation of IR imaging Book . In this paper, a new quantum-well infrared photodetector (QWIP) based on bound-to-miniband transitions in a GaAs/InGaP quantum well with GaAs/AlGaAs short superlattice barriers is presented and compared with the conventional GaAs/InGaP QWIPs.
