Paper Abstract

Charge balance in the depletion region of a photodiode can be used to reduce the space charge effect. A partially depleted absorber (PDA) InGaAs/InP photodetecter with space charge balance and transit time balance has been demonstrated. A 1dB large signal compression current of 24mA was achieved at 48GHz for an 8μm × 8μm photodiode. A 100μm-diameter photodiode achieved a maximum saturation current of 199mA at 1GHz.
