Marktech Introduces New Large Active Area InGaAs Pin Photodiodes

Posted Aug 13, 2019 by Marktech Optoelectronics

Marktech Optoelectronics, a leading provider of standard and custom optoelectronics solutions, has introduced two large active area InGaAs PIN photodiodes, the MTPD1346D-200 and the MTPD1346D-300, designed for expanded infrared instrumentation and monitoring capabilities.

The new models are available in higher-gain active area sizes of 2.0 mm and 3.0 mm, respectively, joining existing series InGaAs PIN photodiodes with 0.1 to 1.5 mm active areas. All series models feature a 1.7 um cutoff. In addition, all large active area Marktech InGaAs PIN photodiodes offer increased light sensitivity, uniform response, low dark current, and identical wide spectral response ranges.

Typical applications for the InGaAs PIN photodiodes include spectrometers, thermometers, thru-water detection and chemical analysis. Available accessories for the models include a full range of SWIR range emitters, all of which can be spectrally and mechanically matched to Marktech InGaAs PIN photodiodes within a single, contact package. Both models are REACH and RoHS compliant.

Small-to-medium-sized volumes of standard Models MTPD1346D-200 and MTPD1346D-300 are available with 24-hour shipment from stock via Marktech distribution partner, Digi-Key Electronics. In addition, alternate package and sorting options, as well as custom and hybrid designs, may be produced in as few as 6-8 weeks from the point of customer prototype approval.
