Opto Diode’s Family of Ultraviolet-Enhanced Photodetectors for Medical Applications

CAMARILLO, Calif. – August 15, 2022 - Opto Diode Corporation, an ITW company, provides a wide variety of ultraviolet-enhanced detectors specially designed for vital medical applications. The UVG family of photodiodes operate from 190 nm to 400 nm,  and are available in two different configurations, circular and square.

The UVG100 is a large, square photodetector with an active area of 100 mm2 and operates from 190 nm to 400 nm.  It exhibits an excellent UV response with 100% internal quantum efficiency. 

There are four circular active area photodiodes in Opto Diode’s UVG product family and they also feature superior UV response with 100% internal quantum efficiency. The UVG20C has a 20 mm2 circular active area in a TO-8 package and is ideal for electron detection between 190 nm and 400 nm. The UVG5S has 5 mm2 circular active area and provides detection from 225 nm to 400 nm; the UVG 20S features a circular 24 mm2 active area with detection from 190 nm to 400 nm; the UVG12, with a 13 mm² circular active area and no cap (for maximum responsivity), operates from 193 nm to 400 nm. 

Opto Diode’s UVG photodiode configurations are easy to integrate into new and/or existing systems. They are successfully used in laser power monitoring, photolithography, and other high-power density systems that utilize ultraviolet light.
