The speed of operation of a reverse biased pn junction is evaluated using a streak camera. As such, power requirement for optical interconnects is calculated using the experimental value of quantum efficiency. It is shown from the results of the experiments that Si-based diodes are capable of operating in minimum of 10's of GHz and that is requires power less than conventional global metal interconnects on an IC.
