Intraband photocurrent spectroscopy of site-controlled pyramidal quantum dots by inserting them into the intrinsic region of n-i-n like quantum dot infrared photodetector structure is reported. The photovoltaic response is observed in the mid-infrared region. A peak responsivity of 0.4 mA/W at 120 meV (λ = 10 μm) is observed at 10 K at -2 V bias. The ability to engineer states in the conduction band of the QDs has been exploited to tune their photocurrent response from 10 μm to 18 μm with a narrow spectral width of Δλ/λ = 0.17.
