Extended InGaAs detectors with wide dynamic range

Extended InGaAs detectors with wide dynamic range
LASER COMPONENTS is a manufacturer of extended InGaAs detectors. They supply customers all over the world with industrial grade quantum detectors from their research and production facility in Arizona. The semiconductor material absorbs incident IR photons in the intrinsic region generating electron hole pairs which are collected at external electrodes. Photovoltaic detectors are an appropriate choice in many applications due to their high sensitivity, fast response, low noise and wide dynamic range.

Expanding the portfolio of linear Si APD arrays

Expanding the portfolio of linear Si APD arrays
The LASER COMPONENTS Detector Group has expanded its standard range of linear Si APD arrays in LCC44 housings containing 8 and 16 elements. The SMD components can be mounted on circuit boards, while also providing enough space for the integrated multi-channel amplifier circuit. Their operation only requires the voltage for the array and 5V for the electronics. The arrays comprise of a monolithic series of fast, low-noise avalanche photodiodes with gaps of merely 40um between the elements.

High-speed optical power meter supports photonics alignment apps

High-speed optical power meter supports photonics alignment apps
The new F-712.PM1 high speed optical power meter from precision photonics alignment manufacturer PI (Physik Instrumente) converts optical signals and currents of photodiodes into a high resolution, logarithmic analog voltage signal. Its high bandwidth of 20kHz enables faster optical alignment, when used in conjunction with PI’s high speed FMPA photonics alignment systems for SiP (Silicon Photonics) applications.

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.
