The device package is ideally designed for laser-monitoring, and rain- and sun-sensor applications in the -40 °C to +125 °C temperature range.

Opto Diode's OD-685C -- a new deep red, surface-mount device (SMD) light-emitting diode (LED) -- features 2.0 mW of radiant power at a forward current of 20 mA, a peak wavelength of 685 nm, and a radiant efficiency of 56 percent. The LED is designed to deliver outstanding efficiency for applications requiring radiometric measurement with tight spectral bandwidth, including science, medical, and veterinary applications.

The SXUV20C is a new low-noise extreme ultraviolet (EUV) photodetector that is specially designed for high stability over long periods of time when exposed to high intensity EUV energy. The photodetector features superior responsivity in the 1 nm to 200 nm wavelength region, a large 20 mm2 circular active area that provides a substantial surface for easy alignment to the EUV laser, and superior hardness in extreme UV environments.

Opto Diode's new series of near-infrared (NIR) detectors are designed for back-facet laser monitoring applications that require improved performance in the NIR spectrum from 700 nm to 1100 nm. These new photodiodes maximize measurement repeatability and offer a low-cost solution for NIR wavebands.
