Characterization of Transimpedance Amplifier
Kevin and I meaured the transfer function of the photodiode circuit using the Jenne laser and agilent in the 40m lab. The attached figures depict our measured transfer function over the modulation frequency ranges of 30kHz-30MHz and 1kHz-30MHz when the power of the laser was set to 69 and 95 μW. These plots indicate a clear roll off frequency around 300 kHz. In addition, the plots beginning at 1kHz display unstable behavior at frequencies below 30kHz. I am not sure why there is such a sharp change in the transfer function around 30kHz, but I suspect this to be due to an issue with the agilent or photodiode.
