Opto Diode Announces AXUV20HS1, a High-Speed, 5mm² Circular Photodiode for Radiation Detection

CAMARILLO, Calif. - Nov. 7, 2018 - Opto Diode Corporation, an ITW company, introduces a high-speed photodetector with a circular active area of 5 mm diameter (typically 20 mm²). It is ideal for high-speed detection of low-energy electrons or X-rays. The AXUV20HS1 is one of several AXUV detectors that feature high performance measurement of photons, electrons, or X-rays. 

The device features electron detection to 200 eV. The high-speed detector has a typical rise time of 3.5 nanoseconds.

Storage and operating temperatures range from -10 °C to +40 °C (ambient) and from -20 °C to +80 °C in nitrogen or vacuum environments. The lead soldering temperature is 260 °C. Opto Diode’s high-speed photodiode is shipped with a protective cover plate to safeguard the photodiode chip and wire bonds.
