InGaAs photodiodes offer superb response from 900nm to 1700nm, perfect for telecom and near IR detection. The 75 and 120 micron photodiodes are offered in isolated TO-46 packages with a lensed cap for single mode and multi-mode fiber coupling. These two sizes are also available with actively aligned FC receptacles. The 70 micron photodiode is perfect for high bandwidth applications while the 120 micron photodiode is perfect for active alignment applications. The 3mm photodiode is isolated in a TO-5 package with a broadband double sided AR-coated window. With the high shunt resistance, the 3mm photodiode is suitable for high sensitivity to weak signal applications.

Safety and Operating Considerations
This device operates under reverse bias voltage, and the polarity of the device can’t be reversed.
Operating the Photodiode outside of its maximum ratings may cause device failure or a safety hazard. Power supplies used with this component cannot exceed maximum peak optical power.
ESD PROTECTION—Electrostatic discharge (ESD) is the primary cause of unexpected laser diode failure. Take extreme precaution to prevent ESD. Use wrist straps, grounded work surfaces, and rigorous antistatic techniques when handling Photodiodes.
