Understanding cliff layer semiconductor and their functions

A cliff layer semiconductor is a special type of semiconductor material that has been designed to resist radiation damage. This material is able to withstand high doses of radiation without being damaged, making it ideal for use in devices that are exposed to high levels of radiation. Cliff layer semiconductors are made from a variety […]

Cliff Layer Semiconductor (Explained in simple terms)

A cliff layer semiconductor (CLSC) is a section within a semiconductor device in which the active region is suspended over a cliff or ledge. You will usually find it between the band alignment of the absorber and the buffer layer. The term “cliff” refers to the sharply sloped side of the active region, while the […]
