Abstract

GaAs PIN photodiodes have been designed to act as receivers in 50 Gb/s optical fiber links, taking into account the fundamental delay components in a PIN photodiode. The devices were fabricated using a dry etching process and have gone through initial testing of dark current and microwave modeling.
