Plug&Play APD Modules up to 25 MHz

A-CUBE: Detecting the Smallest Amount of Light into Child's Play

(PresseBox) (Olching, ) Optical power in the fW range can be easily detected using avalanche photodiodes. For easy plug&play application, LASER COMPONENTS introduces the A-CUBE APD modules that can be integrated into optical benches with a single click.

The heart of the A-CUBE is a low-noise Si or InGaAs avalanche photodiode with a preamplifier and an integrated high-voltage power supply. Temperature compensation is also integrated and allows operation across a wide temperature range at a constant amplification level.

InGaAs detectors allow measurements in the spectral range between 1000 nm and 1650 nm; the silicon APDs allow measurements between 400 nm and 1100 nm. Both versions are available in different bandwidths: from DC to 25 MHz. The A-CUBEs are available on an optional basis with an FC connection.

The shielded housing has an edge length of just 40 mm. It only requires an additional 12 V power supply to operate the APD.
