On Avalanche Photodiode for Optical Communication Technology

  title={On Avalanche Photodiode for Optical Communication Technology},
  author={M. A. Othman and Siti Nabilah Taib and M. N. Husain and Zul Atfyi Fauzan Mohammed Napiah},
This paper presents a review of avalanche photodiode in optical communication technology. Avalanche photodiode is one of photodiodes can be operated in high electric field in order to achieve high bit rate optical fiber communication systems. In long distance optical communication, the avalanche photodiode (APDs) is frequently the photo detector of choice owing to its internal gain, which provides a sensitivity margin relative to PIN photodiode. Previously, studies and research has improved the… CONTINUE READING
