Fiber Optic Detectors

IRVINE, Calif., Jan. 28, 2013 — Newport Corp. has introduced photodiode-based fiber optic detectors, alternatives to existing 918D-IS integrating sphere fiber detectors. They enable free-space and fiber optic measurements by removing the fiber adapter.

Based on the company’s 818 detector series, they feature simple configuration, with three stainless steel adapters available. The FC/PC adapter is included, and the optional FC/APC and SMA connectors are both sold separately. Four detectors are available: ultraviolet (200 to 1100 nm), silicon (400 to 1100 nm), InGaAs (800 to 1650 nm) and germanium (780 to 1800 nm).

The 918D-IS series universal fiber optic sensors use a 1-in. symmetrical integrating sphere to ensure accurate calibration, regardless of the fiber type measured. The dual-detector design includes special optics to improve temperature sensitivity over an operating wavelength from 400 to 1650 nm. The 918D-IS-IG has a single InGaAs detector that operates from 800 to 1650 nm, while the 918-IS-SL uses a single silicon detector for operation from 400 to 1100 nm.

Newport’s calibration service to help maintain accuracy and guarantee performance includes the new ANSI Z450.3-compliant calibration.

germanium detector
A type of photoconductive detector in which germanium, usually doped with boron, gallium and indium, serves as a semiconductor and can detect up to and beyond 100 µm.
integrating sphere
A hollow sphere coated internally with a white diffusing material and provided with openings for incident beam, specimen and detector used for measuring the diffuse reflectance or transmittance of objects.  
SMA connector
The fiber optic connector developed and manufactured by Amphenol Fiber Optic Products.
