Opto Diode has released a photodiode preamplifier combination device that features higher gain in lower light environments, called the NIR/Red Enhanced 6mm² ODA-6W-500M Photodetector-Preamplifier.
The low light, high sensitivity component has a large active area that operates in the NIR wavelength with response at 940nm (typically 315V/µW, min. 290). The standard 6mm² ODA-6W-500M offers 500MOhm gain with custom gains also available, per customer specifications. Opto Diode’s new component is based on its shielded amplifier electronics, featuring extremely low noise and high sensitivity in the red enhanced preamp combination detector.
Smaller and more compact than discrete solutions, the hermetically-sealed TO-39 can is highly suitable for assembly in confined spaces. Ideal for applications such as fluorescence, microscopy and analytical chemistry, the detector is designed for easy integration into new and existing systems. Storage and operating temperature ranges from -25 to +100°C.
