A two-terminal multicolor photodetector that is most advantageous for greater than two bands is proposed. This two-terminal design is particularly significant for focal plane arrays as it maximizes the fill factor and simplifies the readout integrated circuits. Individual color detection is realized with appropriate optical biasing. This concept is demonstrated experimentally using a three-color photodetector and biasing light emitting diodes. The measured linear dynamic range is greater than four orders of magnitude, making it a practical device for a broad range of applications.
