Type: Summary 
Category: PD QE 
Subject: QE and dark current of InAsSb sensors 

The lenses were arranged so that the spot on the PD can become smaller. A quick measurement on a (500um)^2 element showed the QE of ~80%

With the strong focusing lens of f=40mm, the beam was once expanded to a few mm. Then f=75mm lens focuses the beam to ~30um (radius). (See Attachments 1&2)

With this new beam, the QE was quickly checked. The new measurement is indicated as "Sb3513 A2P6new" in the plot. It showed the QE of ~80%.
The AOI was scanned to find any maximum, but the AOI of 0deg was the best at least with the given beam. I'm not sure yet why 500umx500um requires such small beam radius like 30um. Awesome
