Dec 2011Opto Diode CorporationRequest Info
Opto Diode Corp., a division of ITW and a member of the ITW Photonics Group, offers semiconductor radiation sensors for detecting photons and other particles. The company’s new line includes the IRD SXUV 100 ultraviolet/extreme-ultraviolet (EUV) photodiodes. The advanced photon detectors feature high radiation hardness and are designed for long-lifetime operation in high particle flux environments, with no loss of responsivity. The IRD SXUV 100 photodiodes have a 100 mm2 active area. The nitrided metal silicide front window of the diodes permits operation without loss of performance in high humidity and other environmental conditions that normally require sealed packages. Diodes with single active areas are available from 1 to 576 mm2; quadrant diodes with several central openings also may be specified.
