Subject: aLIGO BBPD / Green PD final result 

Here is the conclusive result for the circuit configuration for aLIGO BBPD and 40m Green PD.

- Use Mini-circuits MAR-6SM for the RF preamplifier. The 50Ohm input impedance is used for the RF transimpedance.
  The maximum output is ~4dBm.

- Use Mini-circuits GALI-6 for the RF middle power amp. The gain is 12dB and the amplifier is linear up to +17dBm. i.e. This is still linear at the maximum output level of MAR-6SM.

- The total RF transimpedance is ~2k. The DC transimpedance is also 2k.

- The bandwidth is 80MHz with FFD100 and internal 25V bias. When S3399 is used, the bandwdith goes up to 180MHz
although the responsivity of FFD100 at 1064nm is better than S3399 by a factor of 1.5. At the 40m we will use S3399 for the green BB PD.

- By adding an LC network next to the PD, one of the unnecessary signal can be notched out.
As an example, 9MHz notch was placed for the FFD100 case.

- Noise level: ~10pA/rtHz as a floor noise level at around 30MHz. This corresponds to the equivalent dark current of 0.4mA.


Matt has finished the PCB layout. We will order small first batches, and stuff it for the test. Some of these will be the 40m green PD.
