It is often claimed that silicon photodiodes are linear over many decades, but very little evidence on the experimental verification can be found in the literature. Therefore, an effort was made to investigate the linearity of Si photodiodes over as many decades as possible. Optically, the experiments are based on a cascaded use of the linearity tester described by Sanders, which utilizes the double-aperture method. The electronics include an operational amplifier, a voltage-to-frequency… CONTINUE READING
