Opto Diode Introduces the SXUV300C 331 mm2 Photodiode

The companys full line of IRD ultraviolet photodiodes enables a broad range of UV measurements.

Dec. 15, 2014 - Camarillo, CA - Opto Diode (www.optodiode.com), an ITW company, introduces the SXUV300C photodiode with a large, 22.05 mm x 15.85 mm rectangular active area. These photodiodes detect energy from extreme ultraviolet (UV) wavelengths of 1 nm to 1000 nm. With 331 mm2 of active area, the SXUV300C offers a sizable surface for reflective scatter measurements of high-powered UV lasers. In addition, these photodiodes provide excellent, stable responsivity even after prolonged exposure to high-powered UV radiation.


The companys full line of IRD ultraviolet photodiodes enables a broad range of UV measurements. The IRD product line supports the direct measurement of photons or low-energy electrons, high-power laser measurements in the 1 - 190 nm spectral range, or 100% quantum efficiency from 190 - 1100 nm. Designed to maximize measurement repeatability and reliability, the SXUV300C is ideal for new or existing high-powered UV laser-monitoring systems.
