We describe a new mode of operating quantum well infrared photodetectors which is based on electric field domain formation and readjustment. The domain readjustment and electric field spatial redistribution results from an interplay between the fixed applied voltage and the quantum tunneling physics. The paper will describe the relevant theoretical background and present supporting data. Also described will be the application of domain switching to attain multi λ response of such detectors.
