22 February 2017 Two-dimensional modeling of AlInAs avalanche photodiodes for high gain-bandwidth product
Author Affiliations +
In this work, two-dimensional modeling of planar junction AlInAs avalanche photodiodes is reported. Modeling results of dark/photo current, multiplication gain, breakdown voltage, -3dB bandwidth and gain-bandwidth product, and excess noise etc., are presented. The modeling results of multiplication gain and -3dB bandwidth are consistent with the reported experimental demonstration. Design optimization is also explored for high gain-bandwidth product for such AlInAs avalanche photodiodes.
