OSI Optoelectronics' YAG series of photodiodes is optimized for high responses at 1060 nm and low capacitance for high-speed and low-noise operation. They can be used for sensing low-light intensities, such as the light reflected from objects illuminated by a YAG laser beam for ranging applications. The SPOT series of quadrant detectors is well-suited for aiming and pointing applications.
This series consists of N on P devices and can be used in the photovoltaic mode, for low speed applications requiring low noise, or in the photoconductive mode, with an applied reverse bias, for high speed applications.
