Project description

Imaging scenes using short-wave infrared (SWIR) light would be an enabling sensing technology if affordable SWIR imagers were available. The latest generation of printable semiconductors, such as InAs quantum dots (QDs), offer this possibility. Within this project, we will investigate the fundamentals of charge transport in InAs QD photodiodes to create the essential building block of next generation SWIR imagers.
