Infrared detectors based on GaInSb/InAs strained layer superlattices promise focal plane arrays spanning the infrared. Response uniformity and operating temperature are projected to be superior to those of long-wavelength HgCdTe devices, without the low quantum efficiencies of multi- quantum well devices. Operation of such superlattice-based mid- and long-wave infrared detectors has been demonstrated, with zero bias impedances approaching the HgCdTe trend line and high quantum efficiencies. Two color, back-to-back diodes have also been demonstrated for the first time, in a p-n-p triple layer heterojunction. Various passivation approaches have been compared.
