Abstract:The long-wavelength infrared (LWIR) band between 7 and 14 µm is significant for thermal imaging purposes because it coincides with the blackbody radiation peak of the human body and a low absorption window in the earth’s atmosphere. Also, at 10 µm wavelength, the earth’s terrestrial radiation is maximized and provides a good opportunity for untapped energy harvesting. These two factors combine to make a very strong need for a low-cost detector that operates at room temperature in this band. Antenna-coupled metal-insulator-metal (ACMIM) diodes are a leading candidate due to their high speed and potential manufacturability on Si substrates. In this work, Ni-NiO-Ni ACMIM diodes are fabricated using a two-step lithography process and an oxygen plasma oxidation. The device is characterized to both have current in the nA range and responsivities nearing 1000pA/W.
