The metal-semiconductor (MSM) photodetector attracts a great deal of interest as a result of its high bandwidth and low fabrication costs. In this paper a broad-band circuit model for the interdigitated MSM photodetector is presented. The circuit model can be used for both design and simulation purposes. The circuit model can also take into account nonlinear effects so that the practical behavior of the photodetector can be more faithfully represented.
