We present a novel velocity matched distributed photodetector (VMDP) with an integrated power splitter to achieve high saturation current. A multimode interference power splitter is used to distribute power equally to the individual detectors of the device, thus increasing the heat induced damage limit. The device is made of MSM type diodes.
