The electrical characteristics of photodiode structures on the base of InAS/InAsSbP heterojunctions, that have a high room temperature differential resistance and operate in the mid-infrared region over the wavelength range 1.6-3.5 mu m are reported. At the difference frequency, C-V measurements are showed that at small biases and temperatures which are higher than 160 K, the measured capacity is increase with decreasing frequency. it is possible to explain by presence the deep recombination centers in space charge region of the investigated structures. Have been studied the avalanche multiplication of the photocurrent and the temperature dependence of the monochromatic power-voltage sensitivity in the temperature range 77-300 K.
