Avalanche Photodiode (APD) is a specialized PIN photodiode to operate with high reverse bias voltages. Large reverse voltages generate high electric fields at the P-N junction. Some of the electron hole pairs passing through or generated in this field gain sufficient energy to create additional...

...output power. Receivers typically employ PIN (positive-intrinsic-negative) or avalanche photodiodes (APDs) as detectors. PINs have better short and long wavelength response, while APDs have higher sensitivity, having 10 times the gain. Cable optical qualities determine overall system performance...
