Title:
PHOTODIODE, PIXEL CIRCUIT, AND METHOD OF MANUFACTURING PHOTODIODE
Document Type and Number:
Japanese Patent JP2019079968
Kind Code:
A
Abstract:
To reduce a pixel capacity while suppressing a dark current in a photodiode that performs charge amplification.SOLUTION: An amplification region amplifies photoelectrically converted charges. A cathode electrode outputs the amplified charges. A predetermined reference potential is applied to a reference electrode. A pinning region is embedded with the cathode electrode and the reference electrode and has a lower impurity concentration than the reference electrode. A barrier region is disposed between the pinning region and the amplification region and has a lower impurity concentration than the pinning region.SELECTED DRAWING: Figure 4
