40GHz photoreceivers

Five 40GHz photo-receivers have been fabricated and packaged. They integrate waveguide photodiode technology and Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuits (MMIC) amplifier. The average RF power is ~ -3dBm for 0dBm input optical power. The amplitude ripple is +/- 0.5 dB. The RF responsivity of the photoreceiver corresponds to -19dBm RF power for - 8dBm input optical power.
