Paper Abstract

Due to their inherent technological simplicity, pin and Schottky photo-detectors are prime candidates for optoelectronic integration. We review different detector structures for .8 pm and 1.3 ium/1.55 /um operation with special emphasis on integrateability for large-bandwidth receivers, present experimental results, and discuss problems related to these devices. While a bandwidth potential > 20 GHz can be demonstrated for all these structures, minimum-size requirements pose a limit on the bandwidth in systems applications.
