We report a demonstration of very long wavelength infrared detectors based on InAs/GaSb superlattices operating at T=80 K. Detector structures with excellent material quality were grown on an optimized GaSb buffer layer on GaAs semi-insulating substrates. Photoconductive devices with 50% cutoff wavelength of λc= 17 μm showed a peak responsivity of about 100 mA/W at T=80 K. Devices with 50% cutoff wavelengths up to λc=22 μm were demonstrated at this temperature. Good uniformity was obtained over large areas even for the devices with very long cutoff wavelengths.
