Paper Abstract

We discuss the properties and performance of state-of-the-art barrier enhanced InGaAs metal- semiconductor-metal (MSM) photodetectors, for use at 1.3 micrometers and 1.55 micrometers wavelengths. Different device characteristics, such as response, capacitance, and speed, are considered. Integration with transistors of form monolithic receivers and with semiconductor waveguides to form pre-detection optical processing circuits, is also discussed.
