Silicon photodetectors arelwidely used in the electro-optics industry for a variety of light detection and measurement applications. They offer the advantages of low cost, relatively high speed detection of light with usefully high quantum efficiency in the 0.3 to 1.1 micron wavelength region. In this review, we discuss the various trade-offs that are available to the silicon photodiode manufacturer in optimising the performance of a device for a particular application. This should enable the optical system designer to obtain a clearer understanding of the device parameters relevant to his particular needs, thereby obtaining a better match between device and system engineering constraints.
