Abstract

The experimental receiver sensitivity of an InGaAs/InP heterostructure avalanche photodiode with InGaAsP buffer layers is reported. The receiver sensitivity, measured at 1. 5-1. 6 mu m wavelength and 280 Mbit/s, was minus 38. 7 dbm for a 10** minus **9 error rate, although the optimizations were not performed. But this sensitivity was better than that of a p** plus -n Ge-APD by 2. 5 db at 1. 59 mu m wavelength.
