Title: A quantum dot asymmetric self-gated nanowire FET for high sensitive detection

Abstract

We present a novel device for weak light detection based on self-gated nanowire field effect structure with embedded quantum dots beside the nanowire current channel. The quantum dot with high localization energy will make the device work at high detecting temperature and the nano-channel structure will provide high photocurrent gain. Simulation has been done to optimize the structure, explain the working principle and electrical properties of the devices. The nonlinear current-voltage characteristics have been demonstrated at different temperatures. The responsivity of the device is proven to be more than 4.8 × 10{sup 6}A/W at 50 K.
