REFL165 PD was made and tested. The characterization results are in the PDF file.

Resonance at 166.12MHz
Q of 7.3, transimpedance 667Ohm (Series Resistance = Z/Q2 = 2.5Ohm)
shotnoise intercept current = 4.3mA (i.e. current noise of 36pA/rtHz) 


As the circuit pattern had ~10nH level strain inductance, some technique was needed.

  • The diode was pushed in so as to reduce the lengths of the legs as short as possible.
  • The inductor for the resonant circuit has been located as close to the photodiode as possible
  • The other side of the inductor was needed to be bypassed by a large (0.1uF) capacitor, as the original circuit pattern (D1-L5-C33//R22) was too skinny and long.
  • C32 is also moved next to the diode.
  • The path of the photo current circuit was made thicker by Cu tapes.

Now the size of the loop for the resonant circuit is comparable with the size of SOIC-8 opamp.

This improved the resonant gain by factor of 8.5dB at the test with TEST INPUT. (Analyzer photo)

There is no tunable component.
The resonant freq was adjusted by a parallel inductance (270nH) to the main inductor (15nH).
