Optical front-ends are considered to play a major role in future communication systems operating at bit rates of 20 or even 40 Gbit/s, as well as in mobile communication systems with fibre-optic distribution networks. Consequently, different approaches for the monolithic integration of high-speed receivers for a wavelength of 1.55 mu m can be found in the literature. In this paper, we report on the first monolithical integration of an optical receiver OEIC, which combines the advantageous high-speed characteristics of the waveguide integrated pin photodiode and of the travelling wave amplifier (TWA) circuit, both based on the InP material system.
