Laser Components has announced IFW’s addition of large area 4H n-type SiC photodiodes, with ‘anode on top’. These Silicon carbide UV photodiodes include the JEA2, JEA2S and JEA2SS models. Offering a spectral range between 215nm to 355nm, SiC is optically blind in the visible spectrum. 

The JEA2 series photodiodes offer high UV responsivity at 0.15A/W within a hermetically sealed TO package, together with an isolation (I) option, for standard TO39, TO18 or TO52 housings.

Applications include sterilisation in food preparation, water systems, and operating theatres, as well as in curing UV adhesives and forensic analysis.
