Abstract

The design and manufacturing technology of high -quality CdxHg1–xTe n+–n–p–p+-type mesaphotodiodes ∅ 300 μm for the spectral range of 3–5 μm are presented. The features of the design and technology, as well as the main characteristics of the manufactured photodiodes are presented. It is shown that the use of a semitransparent nickel layer 5 nm thick deposited on the surface of the n+ layer makes it possible to reduce the series resistance Rser to 1–2 Ohm, and the response time to 10–11 s.

Key words: CdxHg1–xTe, photodiode, converted layer, response time.
