UV Photodiodes

SiC Photodiodes with up to 36mm2 active area Since 2009 sglux produces SiC based UV photodiode chips with active areas from 0.06 mm2 to 36 mm2. The 36mm2 SiC UV photodiode is the largest SiC UV photodiode offered worldwide. SiC provides the unique property of extreme radiation hardness, near-perfect visible blindness, low dark current, high speed and low noise. These features make SiC the best available material for semiconductor UV detectors. The UV photodiodes from sglux can be permanently operated at up to 170°C. The temperature coefficient is also low, <-0,1%/K. Because of the low dark current (fA range), very low UV radiation intensities can be measured reliably. SiC photodiodes are available as broad band devices or with optical filters providing UV-A, UV-B, or UV-C-only sensitivity, erythemal action curve or ICNIRP compliance. Each sensor can be ordered as a TOCON with integrated pre-amplifier. Link to product configurator
