Abstract

Solar-blind photodetectors based on AlN/AlGa(In)N superlattices were discussed. Using simple mesa diodes, without surface passivation, low dark leakage currents of 02-0.3 pA were obtained. Excellent visible cutoff was obtained for these devices. The electrical characteristics of p-n junctions formed in these superlattices demonstrated their potential in large-band-gap devices.
