AlGaN/GaN heterostructure Schottky barrier photodetector (PD) with multi-MgxNy/GaN buffer was proposed and fabricated. Compared with AlGaN/GaN heterostructure PD prepared on conventional low-temperature GaN buffer, it was found that we can reduce dark leakage current by more than three orders of magnitude. It was also found that we can use the multi-MgxNy/GaN buffer to suppress photoconductance gain, enhance UV-to-visible rejection ratio, reduce noise level and enhance the detectivity.
