The Detector Group (DET) develops and manufactures high-speed photodetectors and photoreceivers as optoelectronic integrated circuits (OEICs) based on InP according to customer specifications, preferably for the 1.3 - 1.55 µm wavelength region with 1-150 GHz speed of operation.

Research Topics

Our research topics include perpendicular illuminated and waveguide-integrated detectors, using GaInAsP, AlGaInAs, or InP as material system, and design of resulting bandwidth, responsivity and polarization properties. As services, we offer design of mask sets, fabrication of wafers, processing, backend, AR coating, high-speed optoelectronic characterization; and prototype packaging into fiber-pigtailed modules with appropriate RF connectors up to 100 GHz.
