Paper Abstract

The monolithic integration of a SiGe-optical waveguide with a detector based on SiGe- absorbing layers is presented. A maximum internal quantum efficiency of (eta) equals 40% has been measured at (lambda) equals 1.3 micrometers , which corresponds to an external efficiency of (eta) equals 11%. This device is suitable for 2.5 GBit/s data transmission, the performance is limited by the RC time constant due to a capacitance of C equals 1.7 pF.
