Abstract
OPTICAL RECEIVERS FOR LASER COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS NEEDS TO HAVE HIGH DETECTION SENSITIVITY SO THAT ALLOWABLE DISTANCE BETWEEN TRANSMITTING AND RECEIVING STATIONS CAN BE MAXIMIZED. IN THIS STUDY, A HIGHLY SENSITIVE OPTICAL RECEIVER WILL BE DEVELOPED WHICH INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING FEATURES: STATE-OF-THE-ART SIAPD'S WITH EXTREMELY LOW IONIZATION CONSTANT RATIO FOR ION NOISE OPERATION, LOW NOISEGAAS MESFETS AS AMPLIFYING DEVICES, AND THIN FILM CIRCUIT CONSTRUCTION TECHNIQUES. A SENSITIVITY ANALYSIS WILL BE CARRIED OUT, WHICH WILL BE SUPPORTED BY EXPERIMENTAL RESULTSFROM PRELIMINARY CIRCUIT FABRICATION AND EVALUATION.
