Paper Abstract

The effects of radiation on the performance of two types of high gain optical detection components of optical LAN systems has been measured. In particular, we have determined the variation of the sensitivity, responsivity, dark current, and noise with radiation in solid state PIN diodes and avalanche photodiodes. We report here on the detailed studies that have been performed.
