We report an uncooled, lattice-mismatched InGaAs photodiode for coherent spectroscopy that demonstrates linear performance up to a photocurrent of 70 mA and has a broad spectral coverage from 1.2 to 2.2 micron wavelength. The fiber-packaged photodiode module can deliver up to +13 dBm of continuous-wave RF output power, i.e. 2.8 V peak-to-peak amplitude, and does not require any further RF amplification to maximize the effective number of bits (ENOBs) for the backend digitizers. These photodiodes have a −3 dB bandwidth of 6 GHz and can coherently detect up to 6 spectral lines within a 1 ns temporal window.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for 2018 presentations, with transcripts for prior recordings added daily.
