Phlux’s Noiseless InGaAs™ Avalanche Photodiodes (APDs) are up to 12✗ more sensitive than other best-in-class APDs, and they are drop-in replacements for those traditional components
Extended range: Up to 12✗ higher sensitivity enables signal detection from up to 50% greater distance.
Resolution is boosted because these sensors can detect up to 12 times as many pulses/second for a given laser power.
Smaller systems can be made using lower-power lasers, smaller optical apertures, and simplified thermal management.
Lower system costs because high-sensitivity sensors mean less stringent requirements for other optical components, reducing their cost. Also, Phlux sensors can run at high temperatures. This means simpler, lower-cost thermal management.
Aura Noiseless InGaAs™ APD sensors are available as bare die, with fibre pigtails, or in industry-standard surface-mount or wire-ended packages. They can be quickly and easily retrofitted to existing systems.
This family of ultra-low noise, low dark current, 1550 nm APDs are high-sensitivity devices and can be operated with high gain at high temperature
