MENLO SYSTEMS_Ultrafast, High-bandwidth, High Sensitivity Photodetectors Avalanche Photodetector_APD310_3w.jpg


Advanced Features and Benefits 

  • Wavelength Range 850-1650 nm
  • Frequency Range 1-1800 MHz
  • Avalanche Detector for Highest Sensitivity
  • Extremely Short Rise Times
  • Easy-to-use Package


For applications that require highest sensitivity. The APD avalanche photodiodes can provide an extremely sensitive alternative to traditional PIN photodiodes. The APD is sensitive and fast enough for the characterization of, for example, pulsed solid-state lasers on the nanosecond time scale. It maintains high gain stability over the 10 °C to 40 °C temperature range by utilizing a temperature compensation circuit, which adjusts the ~150 V DC bias to ensure operation near the breakdown voltage.
