The DSC705 high-power, balanced photodiodes from Discovery Semiconductors Inc. provide 5-GHz bandwidth.

The DSC705 is a balanced InGaAs photodiode in a push-pull configuration with each photodiode capable of handling high optical power up to 17 dBm (50 mW). As a pair, they will handle 20 dBm (100 mW).

The photodiodes are ideal for quantum key distribution detection schemes as they are shot-noise limited. The broad wavelength response of 1060 to 1650 nm allows for one device for multiple wavelengths and reduces operational and inventory cost. Additionally, they are well-suited for applications using high local oscillator powers up to 20 dBm, such as lidar with high dynamic range.
