High-temperature, long-term life tests of GaInAs/Inp heterostructure avalanche photodiodes have been carried out to establish criteria for high reliability photodetectors in 1.55 μm-wavelength optical submarine cable systems. A failure rate of less than 0.2 FIT at 10°C was predicted with an activation energy of 0.7 ev.
