NEWBURY PARK, Calif., Jan 11, 2011 — Opto Diode Corp., a division of ITW and a member of the ITW Photonics Group, announced its recent acquisition of International Radiation Detectors (IRD) Inc., a semiconductor radiation device manufacturer.

IRD’s operations will be moved and incorporated in to Opto Diode’s domestic facility in Newbury Park by mid-January. Raj Korde, founder of IRD, and his associate, Dejan Jovanovic, will join Opto Diode as full-time members.

“We are extremely pleased to announce this acquisition and we look forward to offering the IRD brand radiation detectors for the measurement of visible, ultraviolet, extreme ultraviolet and soft x-ray photonics,” said Russ Dahl, general manager of Opto Diode.

The company will now offer all of IRD’s products, including advanced, long-operational-life photodiodes available with extremely high quantum efficiency and radiation hardness.

Opto Diode provides high-performance, standard and custom photodetectors, as well as high-quality, standard and custom infrared and visible LEDs.
