Abstract

Low dark current, high-responsivity middle-wavelength infrared (IR) graphene photodetectors using photo-gating amplification of injected photo-carriers are demonstrated. A graphene/p-indium antimonide (InSb) heterojunction and graphene/insulator region were formed. The injected photo-carriers from InSb to graphene were amplified by photo-gating induced in the graphene/tetraethyl orthosilicate (TEOS) region, resulting in the high responsivity and low dark current performance. A responsivity of 14.9 A/W and an ON/OFF ratio of 2.66×104 were achieved. The photoresponse is shown to be determined by the cross-sectional area between the graphene and the TEOS-SiO2, in which the injected photo-carriers into graphene were modulated and amplified by the photo-gating effect. Our results indicate that high-performance IR photodetectors based on the developed graphene photodetectors can be realized.
