The design and fabrication of a position-sensing photodetector that is sensitive to a wavelength of 1.55 μm are reported. This device is based on the photo-lateral effect and uses an In0.53Ga0.47As absorbing layer that is lattice matched to an InP substrate. The output signal (I1- I2)/(I1+I2) varies linearly with respect to the position of the incident beam. The responsivity of 0.75 A/W is uniform over the length of the photodetector. The device is intended for video rate applications and has a -3-dB cutoff frequency of 7 MHz
