LASERS AND DIODES
18 January 2008
Opto Diode has launched its Near-Infrared (NIR) Red-Enhanced, 5mm² ODA-5W-100K Photodiode-Preamplifier.
The new combination device offers 500Mohm gain (custom gains are also available, upon request), extremely low noise, and a large active area. The high sensitivity, NIR wavelength response at 940nm is typically 63V/mW (min 55). Packaged in a hermetically-sealed TO-39 can, the enhanced infrared photodiode’s operating and storage temperature ranges from -25 to +100º.
The new detector combination is one of three new devices that will join Opto Diode’s expanding range of TO-39 packaged photodetector preamp products in the first quarter of 2008.
The new 5mm² ODA-5W-100K photodiode is priced at $44.80 each in quantities of 100 pieces. It is deal for medical diagnostics, such as fluorescence and spectroscopy, test and measurement, and other tasks that require low-light (less than 1 mW) level detection.
