Abstract

A highly efficient photodiode plus amplifier hybrid module in the mm-wave region is demonstrated. The design uses a broadband edge-coupled PIN photodiode and a MMIC amplifier interconnected through a microstrip matching circuit. An improvement of 9 dB in output power is demonstrated at 27 GHz compared to the same PIN diode connected to a 5O¿ amplifier without matching.
