ELEG 867 - Devices for Light Detection from the Submillimeter to the Ultraviolet – Fall 2009 Homework #3 - due Friday, 25 September 2009, in class Photodetectors 1. Consider a generic intrinsic photoconductor as described in Fig. 2.2 of the text. Assuming uniform conditions, (such as the illumination, electron-hole pair generation rate, and internal fields), derive an expression for photocurrent, and show that the photoconductive gain G appears naturally. 2. Using equations for the G-R noise and the responsivity, derive Eqn. (2.52) of text. 3. Based on the photodetector example (2.4) on page 53 of text, carry out the steps and show the work to
