Avalanche Photodiodes with Fiber Pigtails

OLCHING, Germany, June 25, 2014 — With a semiautomatic assembly unit, avalanche photodiodes (APDs) from Laser Components are now manufactured with fiber pigtails and can be adjusted within a few microns.

Achieving coupling efficiencies of almost 100 percent, the pigtailing technology is able to accommodate almost any combination of APD and fiber that can be implemented. All optical fibers with a core diameter of <600 µm can be combined with APDs in a TO-46 housing.

In medical technology or analytical measurement technology, having the detector close to the area of measurement is ideal. Other applications include photon-counting, communications and data transmission.

GLOSSARY
core
The light-conducting portion of an optical fiber, defined by the region of high refractive index.
detector
1. A device designed to convert the energy of incident radiation into another form for the determination of the presence of the radiation. The device may function by electrical, photographic or visual means. 2. A device that provides an electric output that is a useful measure of the radiation that is incident on the device.
optical
Pertaining to optics and the phenomena of light.
