Paper Abstract

High performance photodiodes are essential for photonic insertion into Phased Array Antenna Systems. This paper discusses the RF linearity performance of photodiodes with consideration of thermal effect at high photocurrent, and presents new understandings of both surface-normal and waveguide photodiodes using an equivalent circuit model analysis. The analysis is accompanied by a novel diagnostic technique for robust examination of photodiodes.
