Paper Abstract

A novel proposal to integrate the filter necessary in optically preamplified systems with a photodiode is described. The concepts involved in accurate analysis of optically preamplified receivers are introduced. This is followed by a description and analysis of resonant photodiodes which have been demonstrated in recent years. Such diodes possess the filtering capabilities required for spontaneous noise reduction and so eliminate the need for an external filter device. Preliminary analysis of the performance of resonant diodes with optical amplifiers is presented and an indication of the design parameters concerned given. The conditions for optimum bit error rates are discussed and indications given of substantial further work both in the optimization of device characteristics and the improvement of calculation methods.
