Avalanche Photodiode from Laser Components USA

Laser Components USA Inc.

The SUR500 silicon avalanche photodiode from Laser Components USA Inc., Hudson, NH, is for use in biomedical applications that involve the detection of the smallest signals in the shortwave UV/blue spectral range. At 400 nm, the detector has a noise equivalent power (NEP) of 9 fW/√Hz typical at a sensitivity of ~28 A/W. The photodiode can also be used for measurements in the 255–1000 nm range and is currently available with a 500 µm active dia. Applications include photometry, analytical systems, and fluorescence measurements.
