Modeling of Sb-Heterostructure Backward Diode for Millimeter- and Submillimeter- Wave Detection
Paper i proceeding, 2012

We present modeling of Sb-heterostructure backward tunneling diode (Sb-HBD) for high efficient millimeter- and submillimeter wave detection. The diode epitaxy is modeled and optimized using TCAD software implementing a non-local band-to-band tunneling model combining with the standard drift-diffusion model. The physical device model was found to be in good agreement with reported experimental results. InAsSb/AlSb/AlGaSb structures were proposed and simulated considering the material growth. The potential of the Sb-HBDs for high frequency operation applications is investigated.
