Paper Abstract

We analyze waveguide InP photodetectors for millimeter wave applications. We start with the PIN waveguide photodetector pointing out key problems like optical coupling, microwave access and maximum available power. To benefit form an internal gain we introduce the waveguide InP heterojunction phototransistor showing its ability to operate up to 60 GHz.
