Electromagnetic wave detector

Image Number 6 for United States Patent #6091126.

An electromagnetic wave detector having a first detector element including an active photoconducting material capable of detecting a band of wavelength and a second detector element including an active photoconducting material capable of detecting the same band of wavelength. A common layer is positioned between the first and second detector elements. A first and second connectors are configured to connect to the first and second detector elements, respectively. A third connector is configured to connect in common to the first and second detector elements. The detector further includes contact mechanisms configured to apply control voltages where the voltage applied to the third connector has a value between the values applied to the first and second connectors. A reading circuit connected to the third connector reads a photoconduction current difference between the first and the second detector elements. The applied control voltages are adjusted voltages such that the dark currents or the sums of the dark currents and the background light-currents generated in the two detector elements are equal.
