The photodetectors are with closely spaced pn regions (0.8 μm) on a Ge region with short length (5-20 μm) and narrow width (2.4 μm). Though with a thin Ge layer (∼220 nm including bottom SiGe buffer), light is evanescent-coupled from the Si waveguide effectively to the overlying Ge detector. The device exhibits f3 db bandwidth of 18 GHz with external responsivity of 0.13 A/W for 1550 nm at -1 V. Considering the coupling loss and waveguide loss, the internal responsivity is as high as 0.65 A/W. It is shown that with increasing detector length, the devices' internal quantum efficiency can be improved to ∼90% and by suppressing parasitic effects, speed can be boosted further towards several tens of gigahertz. © 2008 IEEE.||Source Title:||IEEE Photonics Technology Letters||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/82633||ISSN:||10411135||DOI:||10.1109/LPT.2008.928087|
