Photodiode Detector provides 1 ns response time.

Press Release Summary:

Designed to measure temporal pulse shape of lasers or other light sources, FPS-1 Fast Photodetector consists of photodiode sensor that handles wavelengths from 190-1,100 nm. Unit's 50 W load measures ns high peak power pulses, while 10 KW load measures longer and lower peak power pulses. Input can be direct beam or from fiber connection. Operating off battery or wall cube power supply, detector is available with optional ND filters.

Original Press Release:

Ophir Laser Measurement Group Announces Fast Photodiode Detector for Pulsed Lasers

Logan, UT - Ophir Laser Measurement Group, the global leader in precision laser measurement, today announced the FPS-1 Fast Photodetector. Designed to measure the temporal pulse shape of lasers or other light sources, the FPS-1 is a high speed photodiode sensor with wide spectral response. The sensor provides a fast 1ns response time and handles wavelengths from 190nm to 1100nm.

The FPS-1 is compact, easy to use, and flexible. Unlike other high speed photodetectors, the sensor provides two modes of operation: the 50Ohm load measures ns high peak power pulses, while the 10KOhm load measures longer and lower peak power pulses. Input can be direct beam or from a fiber connection. The sensor operates off a battery or wall cube power supply. ND filters are optionally available to adjust the sensitivity to the power level of the source.
