The electro-optical characteristics of PIN photodiodes fabricated on high-resistivity silicon substrates locally thinned by bulk micromachining techniques are discussed. Experimental results and numerical simulations demonstrate that devices fabricated by the proposed approach have leakage current, quantum efficiency and speed performance comparable to the best commercially available Si PIN photodiodes, with the additional advantage of possible back-side illumination, making them suitable for the implementation of two-dimensional arrays having a read-out electronic chip connected to the front-side.

Abstract

The electro-optical characteristics of PIN photodiodes fabricated on high-resistivity silicon substrates locally thinned by bulk micromachining techniques are discussed. Experimental results and numerical simulations demonstrate that devices fabricated by the proposed approach have leakage current, quantum efficiency and speed performance comparable to the best commercially available Si PIN photodiodes, with the additional advantage of possible back-side illumination, making them suitable for the implementation of two-dimensional arrays having a read-out electronic chip connected to the front-side.
