Product Announcement


30 Sep 2021

LASER COMPONENTS has been developing semiconductor detectors in Arizona since 2004.  Our avalanche photodiodes (APD) range is extensive and includes variants optimised for wavelength sensitivity, response time, noise and cost.  We offer discrete APD drive electronics suitable for OEM manufacturers and also complete modules suitable for end users.  We offer both Geiger mode “COUNT” modules for single photon counting applications and also more conventional linear mode “A-CUBE” modules.

Our A- CUBE modules include a low noise silicon or InGaAs APD with matched preamplifier, integrated high voltage supply and temperature compensation circuitry.  Customers can choose from a range of different APD diameters (200µm to 3mm) and amplifier bandwidths (DC to 240MHz).  An optional fibre connector can also be offered, providing a convenient method for sampling from a multimode optical fibre.  Our A- CUBE modules are ideal for customers wishing to experiment with APDs or develop prototype instrumentation.  Simply plug and play with a power supply and oscilloscope.

The A- CUBE module is compatible with 30mm cage mounting systems or can be mounted via additional M6 tapped threads on the side and/or bottom.  Our APD modules are competitively priced and available with relatively short lead times. Requests for customised versions are also welcomed.
