Subject: Trans PD 

I'm in the middle of stuffing the first Trans_PD at the moment.  I'm using the following values for the resonant notches:

  • AC coupling
    • L6=6.8uH
  • 100MHz notch
    • C2=22pF
    • C4=9pF(1.5-15pF tunable)
    • L3=82nH
  • 200MHz notch
    • C10=6.3pF(1.5-15pF tunable)
    • L2=100uH

You can compare these values to Zach's 33MHz diodes in this post.  The lower inductance of L3 gives a lower transimpedance and I've set the gain of the opamp to 2.

I have some concerns that we don't want to much gain for these PDs.  A total transimpedance of 30dB V/A means that 20mW of laser power becomes about 7dBm at the output of the PD.  If we're using a level 13 mixer then that seems about right.  If we want to increase the power at all then we will need to attenuate the output of the PD.
