        Photodetector and Receiver Characteristics

        In this video from the ICT Center, learn about fiber optic receivers. Investigate the components of an optical receiver; how a photodetector converts an optical signal to an electrical one; and the characteristics of PIN, avalanche, and metal-semiconductor-metal photodiodes.

        This media asset was adapted from "ICT Experiment 5: Photodetector and Receiver Characteristics".
