An EHP created within W by absorption of a photon is collected as the c” is swept to n and the h"L to p. Since only one. EHP is collected per *— "'— photon, there is no gain. 5 ((7) Explain how making the device more sensitive in low light levels degrades its speed If W is made wider to receive more photons, the transit time to collect the BB? is longer (degraded response speed). If W is kept the same and the area A is increased to receive more pho» tons, the capacitance is increased and again the response speed is degraded~ ('6) If this photodiode is to be used to detect light with /\ = 0.6 am. what material would you use 3?

On the other hand, emitted photons have [w < (Fn -- [7,).
