Paper Abstract

The present state of development of germanium and InGaAs/InP avalanche photodiodes and InGaAs PIN-FET receivers for 1.3 and 1.55 μm wavelength digital optical fibre systems is reviewed. The design parameters, device structures and performance limitations of these components are discussed and the receiver sensitivities that have been achieved in practice are compared.
