Paper Abstract

In recent years photodetector structures have become more complex in response to more stringent performance demands such as higher bandwidth and lower noise. There are, however, fundamental performance limitations such as the responsivity/bandwidth tradeoff that have not been adequately addressed. At present, it appears that significance increases in performance will be the result of major technological breakthroughs rather than incremental improvements in conventional structures. Our productive approach is the implementation of resonant-cavity structures.
