  1. OSI Optoelectronics Introduces Back-Illuminated Silicon Photodiodes
    8/27/2015

    OSI Optoelectronics (OSIO) has introduced the BI-SMT Photodetector Series. The new single-channel, back-illuminated silicon photodiodes are specifically designed to minimize any “dead” areas on the edges of the devices. Each photodiode is designed on a square surface mount package with dimensions similar to the actual chip.  This makes it possible to have multiple detectors arranged in a tiled pattern for easy coupling to a scintillator.

  2. Successful Boron-Doping Of Graphene Nanoribbon
