Germanium Detectors & Avalanche Photodiodes
Economical near-infrared detection from 800 to 1800nm
Pro-Lite offers Germanium (Ge) detectors and avalanche photodiodes (APDs) from GPD Optoelectronics Corporation. Ge detectors operate from 800 to 1800nm and are similar to InGaAs but have a reduced sensitivity, are more economical and provide improved linearity at high levels of irradiance. Available options include active areas from 0.1 to 13mm diameter, two-colour silicon/germanium (Si/Ge) detectors, cryogenic cooling (TE coolers & dewars), custom packages and submounts, custom filters and windows and avalanche Ge photodiodes.
