New Research Demonstrates the Promise of Graphene as a Broadband High-Speed Photodetector Material

(BUSINESS WIRE) -- NTT Corporation (“NTT”) and the National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS) have jointly achieved the world's fastest zero-bias operation1 (220 GHz) of a graphene photodetector (PD) 2. Furthermore, the research conducted by NTT and NIMS clarified the optical-to-electrical (O-E) conversion process in graphene for the first time. Graphene has high sensitivity and high-speed electrical response to a wide range of electromagnetic waves, from terahertz (THz) to ultraviolet (UV). Thus, it is a promising photodetection material for enabling high-speed O-E conversion at wavelength ranges where existing semiconductor devices cannot operate. However, until now, the demonstrated zero-bias operating speed has been limited to 70 GHz due to conventional device structure and measurement equipment. For this reason, the challenge for graphene PDs is ... Read more »
