Abstract
For fiber-optic communications at 1.3 micrometers , and 1.55 micrometers , materials lattice-matched to InP substrate are exploited to fabricate high performance photodetectors (PDS). Various types of novel structures are used for fabricating high- performance PDs. In this review, the roles of heterojunctions, resonant cavity structures and the edge- coupled structures on the bandwidth, quantum efficiency and noise performance of PDs are discussed. Their potential for the fabrication of integrated photo receivers for applications in optoelectronic integrated circuits is mentioned. Different possible structures and materials for PDs, and other important considerations for high performance PDs are also briefly discussed.
