The developed design approach utilizes noise figure data for the MESFET transistor of the transimpedance amplifier and the elements of a simple equivalent circuit of the photodiode. Although the technique is presented for an inductive T‐network, it can be easily extended to a general noise‐matching network. The design principles are verified with an experimental 2.5 Gbit/s coherent optical receiver implemented with two commercial p‐i‐n photodiodes and a full custom‐designed GaAs MMIC transimpedance amplifier. A transimpedance of 63 dBΩ in a band from 1.5 to 7 GHz with a flatness of ±1.5 dB and average noise current density of has been measured.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/48363||ISSN:||0895-2477||DOI:||10.1002/1098-2760(20000920)26:6<382::AID-MOP10>3.0.CO;2-2||Source:||Microwave and Optical Technology Letters[ISSN 0895-2477],v. 26, p. 382-385|
