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.
They feature a low temperature coefficient and their sensitivity is optimised for the NIR range between 800nm and 900nm.
In addition to the standard range, LASER COMPONENTS also manufactures custom linear arrays. The customer determines the number and size of the individual elements that can be arranged along one or two axes.
