UV APD (Avalanche Photodiodes) for Flame Detection

Electro Optical Components introduces UV Solar Blind Silicon Carbide (SiC) Avalanche Photodiode (APD) for low signal applications in the UV range like flame detection.

The Silicon Carbide (SiC) UV APD has many of the properties of other APDs in that it is extremely sensitive and has high signal gain, but is only sensitive to UV. These SiC UV APDs are a solid state solution for UV PMT (Photo Multiplier Tube) applications.  Besides responding only to the UV, the tough silicon carbide (SiC) gives you:

Stability in high energy UV applications

Higher temperature stability than silicon

Great for UV Flame Detection

The general specifications are:

Sensitivity 1 nW/cm2

Gain 105 – 106

Solid State Replacement for UV PMTs (Photo Multiplier Tubes)
