Paper Abstract

This paper reports on fabrication and characterization of two kinds of photodetectors: surface illuminated and waveguide integrated vertical PIN Ge/Si photodetectors for operation at optical telecommunication wavelengths. The measured -3dB bandwidth of surface illuminated photodetectors is 40 GHz under 5 V reverse bias at 1.53 µm wavelength. For waveguide integrated photodetectors, the measured -3dB bandwidth at 1.53 µm wavelength under 4 V reverse bias is 42 GHz.
