<emphasis role="bold">Introduction</emphasis> The majority of photoreceiver designs fall into a couple of simple configurations, usually a reverse-biased photodiode with voltage follower or transimpedance amplifier and resistive load. However, these are not the only ways to detect light and design receivers, and we should be open to alternative approaches. In this section we look at a handful of less common but occasionally very useful photod…
