Sorting plastics with IR technology

Sorting plastics with IR technology
Using components provided by LASER COMPONENTS, a smart student from Lower Saxony developed a method for sorting plastics that could have an effect on the recycling industry. For his project in “Schüler experimentieren” – a popular science competition for German pupils under 15 – Felix Meyer, a student of Osterholz-Scharmbeck Integrated High School, used six IR diodes to distinguish different kinds of plastics.

Photo control solutions target outdoor lighting

 Photo control solutions target outdoor lighting
The LUMAWISE photo control base assembly, sleeve and cover from TE Connectivity (TE) is in stock at Mouser Electronics. The photo control products help ensure long-term reliability by combining a power and signal interface to the dimming receptacle. They maximise the effectiveness of light-sensing devices through the use of optional clear covers; coloured covers are also available to designate specific voltage ratings.

Duo pair up to supply custom-made photodetectors

Duo pair up to supply custom-made photodetectors
Marktech Optoelectronics has teamed up with Digi-Key Electronics to offer custom-made photodetectors specifically designed and optimised to meet customer specifications. The custom detectors can be made from Marktech silicon photovoltaic or photoconductive photodiodes, avalanche photodiodes, phototransistors, or InGaAs PIN photodiodes.

InGaAs photodiode designed for near infrared spectrophotometry

InGaAs photodiode designed for near infrared spectrophotometry
  The InGaAs linear image sensor consisting of 512 pixels with a 25µm pixel pitch has been introduced by Hamamatsu Photonics. The G12230-512WB employs two InGaAs chips of different cut-off wavelengths, giving it a spectral response range of 950 to 2150nm.

MPPCs incorporate through-hole electrodes

MPPCs incorporate through-hole electrodes
The range of Multi-Pixel Photon Counters (MPPC); the S13360-VE series has been introduced by Hamamatsu Photonics. These COB package type MPPCs incorporate through-hole electrodes called TSV (Through-Silicon Via). This process optimises the available space between the sensitive area and the package edge (0.2mm on the four sides), allowing for a four-sided buttable arrangement.

Avalanche photodiodes counts photons

Avalanche photodiodes counts photons
As an attractive alternative to the photomultiplier tube, LASER COMPONENTS is proud to manufacture the SAP500-series. Based on a 'reach-through' structure for excellent quantum efficiency, extremely low noise, low bulk dark current and high gain, these components can be operated in normal linear mode (Reverse Voltage < Breakdown Voltage) at gains of up to 250 or greater or in 'Geiger' mode (Reverse Voltage > Breakdown Voltage) to permit the detection of single photons.

Smallest photodetector for optical data transmission

Smallest photodetector for optical data transmission
Data traffic is growing worldwide. Glass-fibre cables transmit vast amounts of information over long distances at the speed of light. Once they have reached their destination, however, these optical signals have to be converted into electrical signals for subsequent processing. KIT researchers have now developed a novel type of photodetector that needs far less space than conventional ones.
