Output power spectral density
The power spectral density of the PD100B output was measured for different incident optical powers. The indicated power is the incident power per photodiode. The PD100B output is directly connected to the spectrum analyzer (Tektronix RSA306). Optical source is a Koheron LD100 laser at 1550 nm.
Common mode rejection ratio
When properly balanced, the common mode rejection ratio (CMRR) at 1 MHz of the PD100B is 35 dB. To maximize the CMRR care should be taken not only to balance the optical powers, but also the path length between the two channels.
