Paper Abstract

There is a growing interest in optically controlled microwave devices and systems. This paper is concerned with the design, fabrication and application of optically stimulated microwave PIN diodes. A microwave PIN device was modified to facilitate optical injection of carriers into the intrinsic region of the diode. The optical port transforms the PIN into a three terminal device. The device was characterized at low frequencies (110 MHz) and its utilization as a phase-shifter and as a switch were explored at X-band. Based on these results recommendations for improved performance were developed.
