Opto Diode has introduced the first in a series of three new selective wavelength photodiodes. The ODD-470W features a spectral bandwidth of 100nm. It operates between 380nm and 540nm, with a peak sensitivity response at 470nm. With extremely low dark current and no optical filters used, the new photodetector is suitable for use in colour sensors, fluorescence detection, and medical diagnostic applications.
The hermetically sealed, standard TO-46 can makes installation into any existing or new system easy. Storage and operating temperatures range from -30°C to 85°C, and lead soldering temperature is at 260°C.
