The spectral and electrical properties of vertically coupled quaternary (InAlGaAs) capped InAs/GaAs quantum dot infrared photodetector with different capping thicknesses are investigated, and compared with a conventional quaternary capped uncoupled detector. Electronic coupling between quantum dot layers leads to a reduction in the ground state energy level and hence greater electronic confinement,...
