PD-LD offers a variety of standard and custom PIN Photodiodes of proven manufacture and design. Our InGaAs devices cover the optical spectrum from 1100 to 1650nm. All devices are available in fiber pigtailed co-axial packages or in connector style receptacle packages.
For applications requiring low optical back reflection, PD-LD offers a series of fiber pigtailed InGaAs detectors. 55um InGaAs detectors are aligned to angle-polished, radially tuned fiber pig-tails,to minimize incident reflected light. With this process, back reflection values from –40 to –50dB may be specified. Such devices are ideal for CATV, tap monitor and high speed digital applications.
Devices can be pigtailed with any size optical fiber that is compatible with its active area size. Pigtails may range in core size from 3um to 100micron. One meter is the standard length, but any length or connector termination may be specified. Pigtails may be terminated with ST, FC, SC and LC connectors with either PC or APC polish.
Standard ST, FC and SC housings are available in both panel and board mountable versions. These receptacles can be optimized for use with both single mode and multimode optical fibers.
