EE 164 Problem Set 7 Spring 2005 Problem 1: Find the output current of a photodetector whose quantum efficiency is 0.9. The wavelength is 1.3 m µ , and the incident power lever is -37 dBm. Also, compute the resulting output voltage when the load resistance is 50 , 1000 , 1 M . Problem 2: Consider a PIN detector circuit in the below figure. The battery voltage is 10V, the load resistance is 2 M , the detector’s responsivity is 0.25 A/W, and the dark current is 0.5 nA. a) Draw the diode’s voltage-current characteristic in the photoconductive region for incident power levels ranging from 5 to 50 W and differing by 5 W . b) Draw the load line on the curve. c) Draw a curve of output voltage versus input optical power. d) At what value of the optical power does the detector saturate?
