Opto Diode Corporation introduces a high-performance, two-stage, cooled, lead selenide (PbSe) detector that operates in the mid-infrared (IR) spectral region with peak sensitivity between 4.3 and 4.5µm. The cooler on the BXT2S-28T allows the detector element to operate as low as -45 °C to maximize detectivity (D*). The device also features excellent responsivity of 7.5 x 104 V/W (typical). The exceptionally reliable detector provides the highest sensitivity when monitoring small changes in gas mixtures.

The IR Detectors (B Series) from Opto Diode are high-performance lead selenide (PbSe) single-channel, cooled and uncooled devices. Applications for these detectors include gas analysis, emissions monitoring, spectroscopy, thermal imaging, defense, security, and process control systems. 

Opto Diode offers a new ultraviolet-enhanced detector featuring UV detection between 190 nm and 400 nm spectral wavelength, with a full spectrum of 190 nm out of 1000 nm. The device features stable responsivity over wide temperature ranges and 100% internal quantum efficiency from 200 to 400 nm.

Opto Diode introduces the OD-110LISOLHT as a high-power, GaAlAs infrared light-emitting diode (IRLED) illuminator. This device features a narrow angle of emission and a wide temperature rating for use in several industrial and defense/military applications, such as exterior covert lighting on an aircraft.

The AXUV300C photodiode from Opto Diode offers a large, 331 mm2 rectangular active area with no window to allow for detection of energy shorter than 200 nm. Other features include a response time of 15 microseconds and electron detection as low as 200 eV.

Opto Diode introduces the AXUV63HS1 as part of their family of AXUV detectors featuring high-performance measurement of electrons, photons, or X-rays. This high-speed photodetector is designed with a circular active area of 9 mm diameter and is ideally suited for electron detection.

Opto Diode AXUV20A circular photodetectors are designed specifically for radiation, electron, and photon response in the UV, extreme ultraviolet (EUV), through visible, and NIR wavelength ranges. Each circular diode has an active area of a 5.5 mm diameter with excellent sensitivity to low energy electrons.

Opto Diode’s new NXIR-5C is a red to near-infrared (NIR) enhanced photodiode ideally designed for laser monitoring, medical diagnostic equipment, industrial automation, scientific measurement, and military applications. The photodiode features a circular active area of 5 mm2, and delivers spectral response from 320 nm to 100 nm.

Opto Diode introduces two new 13.5 nm directly-deposited thin-film filter photodetectors ideal for electrical performance in many applications, including laser power monitoring, semiconductor photolithography, and metrology systems that utilize extreme ultraviolet light. The SXUV100TF135 and SXUV100TF135B feature a 100 mm2 active area, detection capabilities between 12 nm and 18 nm, and a responsivity of 0.09 A/W at 13.5 nm.

Opto Diode now offers the new BXT2-17TF single-channel infrared (IR) detector designed to provide excellent sensitivity for industrial carbon monoxide (CO) detection in harsh environments. With an integrated 4.67 µm optical bandpass silicon filter and a thermistor, this thermoelectrically-cooled device features excellent performance and high reliability for long life use.

Opto Diode introduces the NXIR-RF100C as a red and near-infrared (NIR) surface-mount device (SMD) photodiode with spectral response ranging from 320 to 1100 nm. The device package is ideally designed for laser-monitoring, and rain- and sun-sensor applications in the -40 °C to +125 °C temperature range.
