Abstract

We have conceived a novel single photon detector for IR wavelengths above 1 μm. The detection mechanism is based on carrier focalization and nano-injection. Preliminary measured data from unpassivated devices show a very high internal gain and low dark current at 1.55 μm at room temperature
