NEWBURY PARK, Calif., Jan. 18, 2008 -- Opto Diode Corp. said its new near-infrared (NIR) red-enhanced, 5-mm² ODA-5W-100K photodiode-preamplifier is a combination device that offers 500-Mohm gain (custom gains are also available, upon request), extremely low noise, and a large active area.

The high sensitivity, NIR-wavelength response at 940 nm is typically 63 V/mW (min. 55). Packaged in a hermetically-sealed TO-39 can, the enhanced infrared photodiode's operating and storage temperature ranges from -25 to +100 °C.

OptoDiode.jpgThe new detector combination is one of three new devices that will join Opto Diode's expanding range of TO-39 packaged photodetector preamp products in the first quarter of 2008, the company said.

Available now, the new 5-mm² ODA-5W-100K photodiode is priced at $44.80 each in quantities of 100 pieces. According to the company, they are deal for medical diagnostics, such as fluorescence and spectroscopy, test and measurement, and other tasks that require low-light-level (less than 1 mW) detection.

GLOSSARY
diode
A two-electrode device with an anode and a cathode that passes current in only one direction. It may be designed as an electron tube or as a semiconductor device.
fluorescence
The emission of light or other electromagnetic radiation of longer wavelengths by a substance as a result of the absorption of some other radiation of shorter wavelengths, provided the emission continues only as long as the stimulus producing it is maintained. In other words, fluorescence is the luminescence that persists for less than about 10-8 s after excitation.
photodetector
A device used to sense incident radiation.
photonics
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
