A bandwidth of 100 GHz and group delays exhibiting variations of ± 2 psec have been modeled using a front-illuminated InGaAs/InP dual-depletion PIN photodiode. Fabrication with following active or passive elements, such as common gate impedance converter circuitry to reduce electrical back reflections, will use a monolithic design. Realization of this photodiode will represent a significant improvement over currently available photodiodes.
