Abstract
A compact coaxial-type optical transceiver module has been developed w ithout using a conventional 3 dB optical coupler, This transceiver is composed of a newly designed half-transmittance photodiode (HT-PD) and a 1.3-mu m-MQW-LD. An HT-PD is used both as a photodetector and as a window for LD light. Fiber output power of 1.15 mW at the drive curren t of 26 mA and responsivity of 0.48 A/W at the reverse-voltage of 5 V were obtained, Temperature dependence of responsivity is also reported .
