One of the main challenges in the development of the MSM PD (metal-semiconductor-metal photodiode) structures is to obtain a short impulse response. The time-dependent behavior can be best studied in terms of device simulations. We analyze the performances of GaInAs interdigital MSM PD structures by simulating the electron and hole movement with a two- dimensional self-consistent time-dependent technique. The model provides a clear understanding of high-speed dynamic processes in structures with micron and submicron spacing. Several ways of improving the high-speed impulse response of GaInAs MSM PD are proposed.
