Paper Abstract

Long wavelength optoelectronic integrated circuits (OEICs) have made impressive progress in the last decade and their performance has become attractive enough to be considered as part of lightwave communication systems. This paper reviews these aspects of OEICs, with emphasis on monolithic photoreceivers which incorporate heterojunction bipolar transistors for the electronic functions. We review single channel p-i-n/HBT photoreceivers with speeds up to 12 Gb/s and multi-channel array-type receivers suitable for WDM applications with an aggregate throughput of 20 Gb/s.
