Paper Abstract

Optical fiber communication systems operating in the wavelength range of 1.3 to 1.55 micrometers still demand the improvement of optoelectronic (O/E) transducers at the receiver site with respect to sensitivity, speed, and cost. Merging the O/E transducer function with electrical preamplification on one chip helps to improve these parameters. The scope of this paper is to review the status of such 'amplifying optoelectronic transducers', as there are avalanche photodiodes and optoelectronic-integrated circuits.
