The main objective of this dissertation's research was to develop single-photon detectors with high detection efficiencies for photodetection application, as well as solar cells with high conversion efficiencies and radiance resistance for photovoltaic space applications. Hetero-PN-junctions, which can provide unique material combinations, were utilized in order to accomplish these goals.The InGaAs SAM APD, which is intended for telecommunications applications at room temperature operation, is based on a heterojunction formed between a large band gap material such as InP or AlInAs etc. and a small bandgap absorptionanbsp;...
