Do you really want to calculate this ?
Is your pb a case by case pb on production runs, a lot by lot, or doing this
once for each device ref ?
You could simply measure the photodiode response to a light step.
Drive the laser to a safe level, or if you can't drive the photodiode with
an external light source.
