ABSTRACT
We demonstrate high-speed (1 Gbit/s) dual-wavelength demultiplexing and detection in a monolithic linear array of superlattice p-i-n photodetectors in a waveguide configuration. A crosstalk attenuation of 28 dB was achieved between two digital transmission channels with an interchannel wavelength spacing of 30 nm. The device performance is a result of an enhanced electroabsorption due to the quantum-confined Stark effect in the superlattice p-i-n diodes.
