It is shown theoretically, and verified experimentally, that a photodiode, illuminated by monochromatic light of varying wavelength, may show interference ripples in its responsivity, owing to multiple reflections between the diode front and back contact. The amplitude of the ripples is found to increase linearly with the avalanche multiplication factor.
