Opto Diode has released a 16-element photodiode that is suitable for UV/EUV or electron detection. The AXUV16ELG — available from AP Technologies — features a 40-pin dual-in-line package and benefits from 100 per cent internal quantum efficiency.

The photodiode is claimed to be extremely reliable and is designed with large 2 x 5mm (10mm²) active areas.

To enhance accuracy, the 40-pin detector provides a stable response after exposure to high-energy electrons or photons.

The AXUV16ELG is carefully packaged and shipped with temporary covers to protect the components.

Key features and specifications

  • Large 2 x 5mm (10mm²) active areas
  • Reverse breakdown voltage of 25V
  • Capacitance of 40pF
  • Rise time of 500nsec
  • Storage and operating temperatures of -10° to +40°C for ambient environments and -20° to +80°C for nitrogen or vacuum conditions
  • Maximum junction temperature of +70°C
  • Lead soldering temperature (0.080in from case for 10 seconds) of +260°C

AP Technologies Ltd

We supply an extensive range of cutting-edge optoelectronic components for many applications, including industrial, scientific, military, medical and hazard and threat detection.

Our LED range spans the spectrum from UVC to the near infrared (NIR). We also supply laser diodes and laser diode modules from 532nm to 1,850nm.

For detection, we have visible and NIR-enhanced silicon photodiodes and a range of UV-optimised silicon photodiodes with responsivity down to 1nm — suitable for UV/visible spectrometry, extreme UV laser monitoring and direct ion/electron/X-ray photon detection. Our range of silicon photomultipliers comprises true solid-state alternatives to conventional vacuum tube PMTs as well as avalanche photodiodes (APDs), Geiger-mode APDs and even silicon photodiodes in many low-light, scintillator-based applications and high-speed applications such a fast fluorescence and LiDAR.

Since 2002, we have worked in partnership with world-leading manufacturers including:

  • AUREA Technology
  • Fibotec Fiberoptics GmbH
  • IMM Photonics GmbH
  • LDX Optronics, Inc
  • Lumex, Inc
  • Opto Diode Corporation
  • SensL Technologies Ltd
