22 November 1996 Radio frequency optoelectronic receiver for high-performance analog systems
Author Affiliations +
Optoelectronic receiver arrays have been developed for analog radio-frequency photonic links. The monolithic optoelectronic integrated circuits contain photodetectors and transimpedance preamplifiers that are based on InGaAs/InAlAs/InP heterojunction bipolar transistors. These receivers also contain on-chip DC-blocking filters and impedance-matching circuits, as needed for analog applications. Some receivers accommodate signals greater than 18 GHz and others have effective responsivities greater than 11 A/W. Receivers having separate chips of photodetector arrays and transimpedance amplifier arrays have also been developed. The photodetector arrays are passively aligned to optical fibers by means of silicon carriers.
