RF properties and avalanche noise generation in opto sensitive GaN/ AlGaN avalanche photo diodes with and without optical injection have been studied. The optimum frequency and RF characteristics undergo sufficient variation with increase of intensity of optical radiation, which opens the prospects of RF tuning and it’s use as a low noise optical detector.
