APDs (InGaAs)

Unlike common APDs, which have noisy avalanche gain, our custom-engineered, industry-leading advanced InGaAs APDs offer extremely low dark current and half the excess noise, providing superior range and false-alarm performance. These APDs are sensitive over the 950 – 1750-nm spectrum, including the eyesafe spectral region beyond 1300 nm.

Deschutes™ Series

Key Product Features

  • Very low excess noise (k < ~0.2)
  • Moderate gain (M < 20) and low dark current is optimal for low-bandwidth optical receivers where only moderate gain is required to overcome electronic noise
  • Available with collection areas from 30 μm to 500 μm in diameter
