Original Abstract

Avalanche photodiodes (APD) used in receivers for Free-Space Optical (FSO) communication operate in a relatively narrow range of avalanche multiplication. The optimal reverse voltage depends on temperature and is subject to manufacturing variance. These effects are usually compensated for in the openloop mode, where a DC source is programmed with average datasheet temperature coefficients and individually adjusted to compensate for manufacturing variance. The paper describes the design of a receiver with closedloop stabilization of APD parameters.
