Semiconductor photodiode and an optical receiver

Image Number 7 for United States Patent #6683326.

The present invention relates to a high-sensitivity top-electrode and bottom-illuminated type photodiode. The device consists of a highly doped buffer layer, a photo-detecting layer on a semi-insulating substrate. An electrode is formed on the conductive domain that is formed in the photo-detecting layer, and another electrode is formed on the partly exposed peripheral area of the highly-doped buffer layer by removing a part of the photo-detecting layer. As the semi-insulating substrate absorbs less light in the substrate, a decrease of sensitivity by the substrate absorption can be prevented.
