GaAs PIN Photodiode

Application ID: 19705

This simple model demonstrates how to use the Semiconductor Optoelectronics interfaces to model a simple GaAs PIN diode structure. Both the stimulated and spontaneous emission in the semiconductor are accounted for. The corresponding absorption of the light and the associated change in the complex refractive index are included in a self-consistent manner.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
