Expansion of Product Range of SiC UV Photodiodes

More Signal, Same Price

(PresseBox) (Olching, ) Silicon carbide (SiC) is the favorite material when it comes to UV sensitive, robust photodiodes that are also "solar blind". LASER COMPONENTS offers the new photodiodes JEC1.6 and JEC5. They supplement the product range. Compared to the previous version they feature an improved spectral sensitivity in the UVB and UVC range. With an active area of 1.6 mm², the JEC1.6 diode has - with a complete illumination of the chip area - a 25% higher signal at peak wavelength of 270 nm than the JEC1 model - and all at the same price. The active area of the photodiode JEC5 is even 5 mm².

One "offshoot" of this new series is suited for high-resolution position measurements and tracking applications: the JQC5R quadrant diode.
