GaInAsSb/GaSb heterostructures have been grown by metalorganic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD). The optical properties were characterized using low temperature(71K) photoluminescence(PL) and infrared transmission spectroscopy. The FWHM of the typical PL spectrum peaked at 2.3μm is 30meV. Hall measurement results for undoped GaInAsSb layers are presented showing a p-type background and low hole concentration of 6.5 × 1015cm−3. The room temperature performances of the p-GaInAsSb/n-GaSb photodiodes are reported. Its responsivity spectrum is peaked at 2.2 5μm and cuts off at 1.7μm in the short wavelength and at 2.4μm in the long wavelength, respectively. The room temperature detectivity D* is of 1 × 109cm.Hz1/2.W−2
