Title:
SEMICONDUCTOR IMAGE SENSOR
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2021/205662
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
Provided is a semiconductor image sensor which enables integration with high sensitivity to near infrared light in a small area. This semiconductor image sensor comprises: a light receiving element that is formed on a silicon substrate below an insulating film of an SOI substrate which includes the silicon substrate, the insulating film formed on the silicon substrate, and a semiconductor layer formed on the insulating film, the light receiving element comprising a pn junction diode which is formed in a direction perpendicular to a main surface of the silicon substrate and is sensitive to near infrared light; and a high voltage generating circuit that generates an applied voltage for applying a reverse bias voltage to the pn junction diode. The silicon substrate has an impurity concentration in a range of 1×1012/cm3 to 1×1014/cm3 and a thickness in a range of 300 to 700 μm, and the applied voltage is in a range of 10 to 60V.
