Abstract

We have investigated the spectral responsivity of porous silicon Schottky barrier photodetectors in the wavelength range 0.4–1.7 μm . The photodetectors show strong photoresponsivity in both the visible and the infrared bands, especially at 1.55 μm . The photocurrent can reach 1.8 mA at a reverse bias of 6 V under illumination by a 1.55-μm , 10-mW laser diode. The corresponding quantum efficiency is 14.4%.
