Opto Diode showcased the NXIR-RF100C, a red and near-infrared enhanced, reduced-footprint, surface-mount device (SMD) photodiode at Photonics West.
Designed for a wide variety of applications, the new photodetector has spectral response from 320 to 1,100 nm and can be used for laser-monitoring, rain, and sun-sensor applications. The rugged package is designed specifically for environments requiring an extended temperature range from -40°C to +125 °C and has an anti-reflective coated window that provides greater than 98 per cent transmission.
The NXIR-RF100C has an active area of 1mm2 in a small 3mm x 3.5mm surface-mount package. The new device has high responsivity of 0.62 A/W at 850nm and 0.35 A/W at 1,064nm. It also has low capacitance of 3pF at 0V, high shunt resistance – greater than 200MΩ – and very low dark current at 0.1nA. The NXIR-RF100C detectors are available in high volume on tape and reel.
