  • The steady-state charge continuity equations are linearized to derive a space charge field that accompanies the ambipolar diffusion and drift described by the Rittner equation. The space charge field is evaluated for a typical 14.2 μm cutoff wavelength HgCdTe detector operating at 85 K. It is found that the space charge density is~ 10-5 times the hole and electron population density...
