Waveguide p-i-n photodiodes are theoretically revealed to have a great advantage over conventional surface-illuminated p-i-n photodiodes and metal-semiconductor-metal photodiodes in the performance limit, the product of the bandwidth and the external quantum efficiency. Experimental results show a bandwidth of over 75 GHz and a high efficiency with a mushroom-mesa multimode waveguide p-i-n photodiode.
