Avalanche Photodiodes with Fiber Pigtails

Detect Small Amounts of Light Using a Single Fiber
Avalanche Photodiodes with Fiber Pigtails (PresseBox) (Olching, ) LASER COMPONENTS now manufactures avalanche photodiodes with fiber pigtails. With a semiautomatic assembly unit, the fibers can be adjusted exactly to within a few μm and thus achieve coupling efficiencies of almost 100%. The pigtailing technology is very flexible - almost any combination of APD and fiber can be implemented: all optical fibers with a core diameter of < 600 μm can be combined with our APDs in a TO-46 housing.

The advantages of fiber coupling are obvious: in medical technology or analytical measurement technology, it is often not ideal to have the detector close to the area of measurement; in photon-counting applications, it is possible to shield disruptive signals with the help of an opaque fiber jacket; in industry, data is transmitted across very long distances via optical fibers.

On a standard basis LASER COMPONENTS offers the SAP-series Geiger-mode APDs and the particularly low-noise IAG-series InGaAs APDs. Hermetically sealed and with high mechanical durability, these APDs exceed the requirements of the Telcordia GR-468 standard. The development of APDs according to customer specifications is inexpensive and possible at any time.
