- Max. Conversion Gain 5.0 x 103 V/W
High Sensitivity Photoreceivers at High Bandwidth
The series HCA-S-400M Photoreceivers combine fast photodiodes with the proven and outstanding FEMTO HCA Current Amplifier technology. The HCA-S-400M is available with either a fast Si or InGaAs photodiode covering a spectral range from 320 to 1000 nm and 900 to 1700 nm, respectively.
The amplifier transimpedance is 5 x 103 V/A resulting in a maximum conversion gain of 5 x 103 V/W at 1550 nm for the InGaAs model. The sophisticated DC coupled multi-stage amplifier design allows measurements from DC to a maximum bandwidth of 400 MHz corresponding to a minimum rise-time of 1 ns. Due to the low-noise design signals with an optical power in the micro-Watt range can be detected without the need for further averaging. Different models with free space or fiber optic input are available.
Best Possible Solution With Customized Photoreceivers
Every application is different with its individual requirements for bandwidth, gain and responsivity. Therefore FEMTO offers customized photoreceivers with optimized specifications for a great variety of applications in addition to the standard product portfolio. After a detailed analysis we offer individual solutions at very reasonable prices and already in single quantities.
