Physics and Simulation of Optoelectronic Devices IX
High speed, high efficiency, low noise and high saturation power are the characteristics desired for detectors in high bit-rate long-haul optical communication systems. We present the modeling of Traveling-wave Amplification Photodetectors (TAP detectors). These novel monolithic devices combine optical gain and absorption in a distributed fashion along a traveling-wave structure, providing high-responsivity and high-speed performance, without sacrificing saturation power. We present the modelsdoi:10.1117/12.432604 fatcat:3we3cligvrhw7i5txg3h63dr4a
