Powerful new photodetector can enable optoelectronics advances

07/12/2017 10:40 AM EDT

the new photodetector consists of nanocavities sandwiched between a ultrathin single-crystal germanium

In a nanoscale photodetector that combines a unique fabrication method and light-trapping structures, a team of engineers from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the University at Buffalo has overcome obstacles to increasing performance in optoelectronic devices--like camera sensors or solar cells--without adding bulk.
