Abstract

Monte Carlo based calculations of the impulse photoresponse in bulk InAs p-i-n structures at the 2.0 μm wavelength are reported. The predicted results look promising with effective turn-off times of less than 5 ps. These results are much better than the response reported for GaAs photodetectors at their bandedge.
