Device structure parameters governing APD performances are discussed and optimum conditions are elucidated for both Ge APDs and heterostructure InGaAs APDs. Two types of Ge APDs with p+n and p+nn- structures were developed for use in 1.0 ~ 1.55 um wavelength. The dark current of Ge APDs was reduced to improve detection sensitivity by newly developed processes. Heterojunction InGaAs APDs were developed, which are formed in a top window type planar structure with an InP cap. Avalanche gain of about 30 and low dark current density of about 2 x 10-5A/cm2 at 0.9VB were obtained. High bit-rate operation was achieved at 450Mb/s.
