Abstract

The paper deals with a dynamic method for measuring the photodiode equivalent capacitance and its dependence on applied voltage. Based on an original and inexpensive mode-locking technique, the method uses computer evaluation of the measured response pulse shape for a certain value of the photodiode inverse bias voltage. By considering the emergent pulse shape as Gaussian and the photodiode as current generator, the authors evaluated the equivalent photodiode capacitance from the pulse shape on an oscilloscope screen.
