Abstract
An evanescently coupled waveguide photodiode (EC-WG-PD) for both 1310-nm and 1550-nm wavelength bands has been developed for use in long-haul and high capacity very-short-reach (VSR) transmission systems. The EC-WG-PD is much more robust than a conventional waveguide photodiode (WG-PD) under high optical input operation because its absorbed optical power density is distributed along the light propagation in the waveguide. High external quantum efficiency of 65% for 1310 nm and 74% for 1550 nm, and a high 3-dB-down bandwidth of 41 GHz were demonstrated. No significant degradation of the frequency response was observed up to an average photocurrent of 10 mA. Moreover, a clear receiving eye-waveform was obtained at 40 Gb/s for an implemented single-output receiver module.
