Opto Diode Introduces a 100 mm2 Photodiode- SXUV100

The highly sensitive device permits detection to 1 nm, and provides a remarkably stable response after exposure to EUV/UV conditions.

January 6, 2014 - Newbury Park, CA - Opto Diode (www.optodiode.com), a division of ITW, and a member of the ITW Photonics Group, announces a new single active area photodiode featuring 100 mm2 - the SXUV100. The highly sensitive device permits detection to 1 nm, and provides a remarkably stable response after exposure to EUV/UV conditions. Best applications include detection of 13.5 nm wavelengths or any high power density source monitoring between 1 nm - 150 nm.


The new photodiode is operational from 1nm to 1000 nm, with peak photon responsivity at 0.27A/W (at 1 nm) and 0.33 A/W (at 850 nm). Shunt resistance (Rsh) @ ± 10 mV is 10 MOhms (min.), the capacitance is typically 6 nanofarads (nF), and the response time is typically 250 nanoseconds.

The new SXUV100's operating and storage temperatures range from -10 degrees C to 40 degrees C (ambient) and from -20 degrees C to 80 degrees C (in nitrogen or vacuum conditions). The maximum junction temperature is 70 degrees C and the lead-soldering temperature is 260 degrees C at 0.080 in. from the case for 10 seconds.

Opto Diode's new 100 mm2 photodiodes are available in single or volume quantities, and shipping now. For more information about Opto Diode's new SXUV detector series, please visit: http://optodiode.com/pdf/SXUV100.pdf.
