We present high performance vertical-illumination type Ge-on-Si avalanche photodetectors and photoreceiver modules operating up to 25 Gb/s. The Ge avalanche photodetectors were grown on a bulk-silicon wafer by RPCVD, and fabricated with CMOS-compatible process. The fabricated devices show a -3dB bandwidth greater than 13 GHz at operational biases (gain> 20) for λ ~ 1550 nm. The measured maximum gain-bandwidth (GB) product is ~ 493 GHz. Two types of Ge-on-Si APD receiver modules exhibit high sensitivities of better than –20.7 dBm for a 25 Gb/s operation at a BER = 10-12 and λ ~ 1310 nm, and –27.75 dBm for a 10 Gb/s operation at a BER = 10-12 and λ ~ 1550nm, respectively.
