Laser Power Detector measures up to 500 mW on a 2 x 2 mm2 Footprint

Switzerland -- greenTEG has further miniaturized its laser power sensing technology for OEM applications. The gRAY B0.5-SC measures up to 500 mW on a surface of only 2x2 mm2. The detector is available as bare die component or mounted on a PCB for easy OEM system integration. With its small dimensions, the detector is especially suited for measurements inside the laser source.

gRAY B0.5-SC detectors have no angle dependence (± 30°) and measure in a spectral range from 190 nm to 15 μm. The detector can be reflow soldered like an SMD component allowing straightforward mechanical and electrical system integration. At higher volumes, the B0.5-SC is among the most cost effective detectors.

gRAY Laser Power Detector Portfolio

The gRAY B0.5-SC complements greenTEG’s product portfolio of housed, mounted, and bare-die laser power detectors. greenTEG’s detectors are based on the thermopile technology. A patented process enables the production of detectors with a thickness of 0.6 mm. This enables easy integration in confined environments and a fast rise time of less than a second leading to an improved control of laser processes and reduced costs.
