Low-temperature-grown GaAs (LTG-GaAs) based photodetectors (PDs) draw significant attention due to their ultrahigh electrical bandwidth performances. A review is given of the advantages and applications of LTG-GaAs based metal-semiconductor-metal traveling wave photodetectors (MSMTWPDs). The ultra-high speed and record high power-bandwidth product performances in both short (∼800nm) and long (∼1300nm) wavelength regimes are discussed.
