Abstract

Tunable resonant cavity enhanced detectors (RCED) have been realised for the mid-infrared (IR). The bottom mirror as well as the photodiode inside the cavity are based on narrow gap IV–VI materials and grown by molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) on Silicon substrate. The length of the cavity and therefore the resonance wavelengths can be adjusted continuously by a movable top mirror. We present measurements of such an RCED with a tuning range from 4.6 μm to 5.1 μm.
