Performance of Sensitivity of Direct Detection Optical Receiver Incorporating MOSFET-Based Transimpedance-Type Amplifier
Keywords: MOSFET, transimpedance amplifier, optical receiver, sensitivity, optical receiver noise, transconductance.
AbstractMetal-Oxide-Semiconductor Field-Effect Transistors (MOSFETs) offer many
advantages due to their low noise and high associated gain at microwave frequencies.
Therefore, they are well suited to the amplifier requirements of broadband light-wave
receivers, through providing a high dynamic range and wide bandwidths.
In this work, the performance of integrated optical receiver consisting of PINphotodiode
) of an optical receiver is approximately constant if it is
based on well-designed MOSFET.
