A review is presented of the properties of interdigitated metal-semiconductor-metal (MSM) Schottky barrier photodetectors based on the InGaAs-InP material system, and the performance achieved by experimental devices is discussed. The experimental work concentrates on the barrier-enhanced lattice-matched InAlAs-InGaAs device grown by low pressure organometallic chemical vapor deposition (OMCVD), which has to date yielded detectors with the highest performance characteristics. Current research on their integration with FETs to form monolithic receivers and with waveguides for on-chip optical signal processing is also included
