چکیده:

Parallel-fed travelling wave photo detectors (TWPDs) are used frequently in high power, high bandwidth applications. However increasing the number of photodiodes within theirstructure in order to increasing high power capabilities significantly reduces bandwidth. So there is trade-off. We haveimproved -3dB bandwidth of a parallel-fed TWPD, with four photodiodes, by varying its structural parameters. Resultant bandwidth of the photo detector is 105GHz which shows 25GHzimprovement with respect to TWPDs that have been reported previously. S22 of this photo detector is below -10dB within itsbandwidth which shows that Bragg frequency is much higher than bandwidth
