Paper Abstract

Fractal characterization technique with spectral analysis of 1/f noise were used to study the carrier transport behavior in laser damage avalanche photodiodes. By computing correlation integral from the time series at embedding dimension M equals 2, we quantitatively characterized the random noise enhanced by laser-induced defects in laser damaged photodiodes. The lack of correlation between random noise and 1/f noise is the basis of the observation. It has been found that increasing random noise would change the characteristic features of 1/f noise spectrum. In this study, we proved that combining 1/f noise spectra, I-V curve measurements, and fractal characterization method could lead to a better understanding in the failure mechanism of laser damage to photodiodes.
