300‑MHz Deschutes BSI™ Photoreceiver with 200‑µm Backside-Illuminated R‑APD: RDC1‑NJAC
Voxtel's RDC1‑NJAC is a near infrared (NIR) photoreceiver incorporating a low-noise transimpedance amplifier (TIA) and a thermoelectrically (TE)-cooled backside-illuminated (BSI) InGaAs/InAlAs (950–1700 nm) reduced excess noise APD (R‑APD).

The RDC1‑NJAC is the 200‑µm-diameter version of Voxtel's RDC-1000 series of high-sensitivity photoreceivers. The RDC1‑NJAC is the highest-speed, lowest noise 200‑µm- APD photoreceiver available, which makes it ideal for laser rangefinders, laser designators, free-space optical communication, optical instrumentation, and LADAR/LIDAR applications.

The receiver integrates Voxtel's 200‑µm Deschutes BSI™ backside illuminated R‑APD (model VFC1‑NBZA) with a low-noise, high-bandwidth transimpedance amplifier (TIA). The backside-illuminated operation of the Deschutes BSI™ detectors provides both higher responsivity and lower capacitance than competing frontside-illuminated APDs.

The R‑APD is custom-engineered for reduced excess noise, which allows this photoreceiver to achieve higher sensitivity, better signal-to-noise (STN) performance, and lower bit error rates (BERs) than conventional telecom APDs. A single-stage thermoelectric (TE) cooler is included to eliminate temperature-induced gain variability and to allow stable performance over the range of application environments.

Applications:

  • Laser range finding
  • Free-space optical communications
  • LADAR/LIDAR
  • Optical time domain reflectometry
  • Optical coherence tomography
  • Fluorescence measurements, spectroscopy, chromatography and electrophoresis
  • Telecommunications

Options:

  • Fiber-optic pigtail inputs with the variety of standard fiber connectors
  • Support Electronics Boards, including power conditioning and TEC control
