Abstract
Analog-to-digital converters operating at unprecedented speeds and resolutions are presently under development using a combination of photonics and electronics techniques. These systems impose stringent performance constraints on the photoreceivers used for photonic - electronic conversion, particularly in regard to linearity and noise. Photodetectors must accommodate optical pulses with very high input powers iwthout saturation, and the pulse input energy must be accurately determined. This paper presents design considerations and simulations of photodetectors and associated preamplifiers to meet these goals.
