Paper Abstract

A closed-form analytical expression is given for the bandwidth of p-i-n avalanche photodiodes in a normalized form. The formula simultaneously describes the effect of the time constant of the RC network formed by the load resistor and junction capacitance and the finite gain- bandwidth product of the avalanche multiplication process. An optimum choice of the depletion layer width resulting in maximum bandwidth is also given.
