Photodetectors Book Review:

This book has been written as part of a new series of scientific text-books being published by Plenum Publishing Company Limited. The scope of the series is to review a chosen topic in each volume, and in addition, to present abstracts of the most important references cited in the text. Thus allowing the reader to supplement the information contained within this book without have to refer to many additional publications. This volume is devoted to the subject of Radiation Detectors, known as Photodetectors, and particular emphasis has been placed on devices operating in the infrared region of the electromagnetic spectrum. Although some detectors which are sensitive at ultraviolet and visible wavelengths, are also described. The existence of the infrared region of the spectrum has been known for almost two hundred years but the development of detectors specifically for these wavelengths was limited for a long time due to technology limitations and difficulties in understanding and explaining the phenomena involved. Significant advances were made during World War II, when the potential military applications of being able "to see in the dar~' were demonstrated, and this progress has been maintained during the last forty years when many major advances have been achieved, such that the use of photodetectors for both civil and military applications is now relatively common and can be inexpensive.

The Physics of Quantum Well Infrared Photodetectors Book Review:

In the past, infrared imaging has been used exclusively for military applications. In fact, it can also be useful in a wide range of scientific and commercial applications. However, its wide spread use was impeded by the scarcity of the imaging systems and its high cost. Recently, there is an emerging infrared technology based on quantum well intersubband transition in III-V compound semiconductors. With the new technology, these impedances can be eliminated and a new era of infrared imaging is in sight. This book is designed to give a systematic description on the underlying physics of the new detectors and other issues related to infrared managing.

High operating temperature Infrared Photodetectors Book Review:

This book presents approaches, materials, and devices that eliminate the cooling requirements of IR photodetectors operating in the middle- and long-wavelength ranges of the IR spectrum. It is based mainly on the authors' experiences in developing and fabricating near room temperature HgCdTe detectors at Vigo Systems Ltd. and at the Institute of Applied Physics Military University of Technology (both in Warsaw, Poland).The text also discusses solutions to other specific problems of high-temperature detection, such as poor collection efficiency due to a short diffusion length, the Johnson-Nyquist noise of parasitic impedances, and interfacing of very low resistance devices to electronics.

Low light level Limitations of Silicon Junction Photodetectors Book Review:

The properties of silicon junction photodetectors have been investigated with the goal of improving low-light-level performance of a reading aid for the blind. This application requires an image-forming mosaic of photodetectors, which may be conveniently fabricated by use of integrated circuit technology. Solid-state imaging is particularly attractive because of the low resolution (100 to 200 elements) needed for the reading-aid system. Attention is focused upon photodetector operation utilizing the charge-storage technique, because of the usefulness of this method in increasing the signal level in scanned image applications. The signal and noise transmission properties of the basic charge-storage circuit are analyzed, with the assumption of an ideal switching element. The primary contributors to output uncertainty are found to be dark current and its associated 1/f noise because of the lowpass nature of the circuit. Practical charge-storage circuits, based upon the available bipolar and metal-oxide-semiconductor (MOS) technologies, are studied. Low-light-level performance is determined to be most severely limited by switch imperfections. The low-light-level operation of the charge-storage phototransistor is analyzed in detail. Performance is shown to be increasingly degraded as the light level is reduced due to influence of the emitter-base junction. The use of an MOS switch is considered, and capacitive feedthrough found to be excessive. A charge integration scheme is proposed to circumvent the feedthrough charge, leaving the most significant noise source to be an unusual 'charge pumping' effect. (Author).
