Summary: 
This paper summarizes recent progress on modified uni-traveling carrier photodiodes that have achieved RF output power levels of 1.8 Watt and 4.4 Watt in continuous wave and pulsed operation, respectively. Flip-chip bonded discrete photodiodes, narrowband photodiodes, and photodiodes integrated with antennas are described.
