Paper Abstract

Metal-semiconductor-metal photo-diodes with interdigitated Schottky barrier fingers have been developed for applications in monolithic optical receiver circuits with the purpose of detecting millimeter wave modulation signals being transmitted via an optical carrier. The devices are planar and incorporated submicron finger spacings and a thin absorption region for speed with a buried stack of tuned Bragg reflectors for enhanced sensitivity at the carrier wavelength. These devices have been integrated with short-gate MODFET amplifiers to form the complete monolithic integrated optical receiver circuit. The circuits comprise of the active devices and coplanar waveguide matching/filter networks for optimal MMW performance. DC bias networks have also been integrated with the circuits.
