SOI Lateral PIN Diodes for Temperature and UV Sensing in VeryHarsh Environments
Keywords: SOI PIN diode, temperature sensor, UV sensor
We study the use of lateral SOI PIN diodes as thermometers and Ultra-Violet photo-detectors in a large range of temperature from -175°C to 300°C and under radiations. These diodes indeed show very linear voltage vs temperature characteristics when biased with a constant current and can be successfully used in an integrated temperature sensor [1]. Similarly, they show high quantum efficiency for UV light sensing measured from -175°C to 125°C up to now. They have also been embedded in a dedicated readout circuit [2]. The diodes characteristics after neutron irradiation are also discussed. The diodes are implemented in two fully-depleted SOI technologies: UCL 2µm process and OKI 0.15µm industrial process [3, 4].
