Circular Photodiode Delivers High-Speed Electron Detection

Opto Diode’s latest high-speed photodetector, the AXUV63HS1, sports a circular active area of 9 mm in diameter, typically 63 mm². The photodiode is suitable for detection and measurement of electrons, photons, or X-rays.  


The component has a typical rise time of 10 ns and a maximum dark current of 100 nA, with a minimum reverse breakdown voltage of 160V. It is shipped with a cover plate to protect the photodiode chip and the wire bonds. Storage and operating temperatures range from -10°C to +40 °C (ambient) and from -20°C to +80°C in nitrogen or vacuum environments.  The lead soldering temperature is +260°C. For greater learning and enlightenments, peruse the AXUV63HS1 datasheet.
