Packaged photodetectors based on PIN photodiodes for monitoring Q-switched and mode-locked pulsed lasers.
- Compact Integrated Package Complete ready-to-use solution in a compact package, including optional bias.
- Flexible Options Full range of detector materials and sizes, free-space or fiber-coupled, plus wall-plug option.
- Simple Operation Plug directly into 50 Ω coaxial input of oscilloscope or spectrum analyzer.
Complete Family of Photodetector Products
Three types of photodetectors to support all your laboratory and OEM needs. <10 GHz photodetectors for general use, >10 GHz devices for high repetition-rate applications, and amplified detectors including a transimpedance amplifier for low-energy pulses.
Don’t know which is the right product for you? We can help you choose.
<10 GHz Photodetectors
Monitor the pulse energy and/or pulse shape of your laser at speeds up to a few GHz, at wavelengths spanning the visible and near-IR with very low noise equivalent power (NEP). BNC output connector.
Wide Wavelength Coverage - Choice of Si or InGaAs photodiodes.
Optimized Detec or Sizes - Active area diameters from 100 µm to 4.6 mm.
Integrated Internal Bias - Each photodetector includes a long-life lithium cell.
>10 GHz Photodetectors
For very high-frequency applications include heterodyne signal detection and fast time-domain measurements. SMA output connector.
Ultra-high Frequency Response -Bandwidths as high as >22 GHz.
Input Options - Choice of single- or multi-mode fiber, or free-space inputs.
Broad Wavelength Options - Responsive from 500 nm to >2000 nm.
Integrated transimpedance amplifier combines high gain for low input power < 1 mW.
High Conversion Gain - As high as 3.25 V/mW.
Input Flexibility - Fiber-coupled or free-space, with half-angle acceptance up to 20°.
Compact Design - Small footprint integrates easily into your system.
