Abstract

The barrier layer in InAs/GaSb LWIR nBn detector is usually composed of AlGaSb alloy, which has a non-negligible valence band offset and is sensitive to chemical solutions. In this work, we investigated a type-II superlattice (T2SL) barrier that is homogeneous with the T2SL absorber layer in order to resolve these drawbacks of the AlGaSb barrier. The lattice mismatch of the T2SL barrier was smaller than that of the AlGaSb barrier. At ${-}{{70}}\;{\rm{mV}}$ and 80 K, the dark current density and the noise equivalent temperature difference of the nBn devices with the T2SL barrier were ${4.4} \times {{1}}{{{0}}^{- 6}}\;{\rm{A}}/{\rm{cm}}^2$ and 33 mK, respectively.
