    We demonstrate the effect of uniaxial tensile and compressive strain in Ge p-i-n photodiode integrated on Si using four-point bending structures. Responsivity at 1550 nm is increased from 0.67 to 0.75 A/W by tensile strain in the <110> direction while for compressive strain it decreases from...
