This tutorial text provides an overview of design principles for receivers, based on courses for practising engineers. Contents: optical communications; system performance; photodetection; photodetectors; noise modelling; front-end design; performance analysis.Figure 4.1 2(b) illustrates the energy-band diagram for a metal-semiconductor photodiode. A photon with energy greater than the barrier energy E/, will be absorbed, causing the formation of electron-hole pairs. The electron-hole pairs are thenanbsp;...
