Paper Abstract

A study was made of a new photodetector switching circuit which incorporates a switching transistor in series with a photodiode. A PIN photodiode was switched between reverse and zero bias to switch intensity-modulated optical signals. Isolation of 40 dB was measured from 50 MHz to 1 GHz, and average switch transition times of 30 ns were measured.
