Advanced Photonix, a division of OSI Optoelectronics, introduces a high-sensitivity, high-accuracy, 2 mm diameter Position-Sensing Detector (PSD) with spectral response from the visible out to the near and short-wave infrared (NIR-SWIR) wavelengths. The innovative APX-PSD-XVInG-3.1 is a low noise PSD with sensitivity from 400 nm to 1700 nm and high-position detection accuracy.
APX’s 400-1700 nm PSD features 2kΩ inter-electrode resistance, high shunt resistance, low capacitance, and 20 µm position detection error. The highly sensitive PSDs are conveniently housed in a hermetically sealed TO-5 package or a 5 mm by 3.6 mm surface mount ceramic package with an anti-reflective window, making them suitable for integration into a variety of systems.
Advanced Photonix’s new PSD is specially designed for Extended Visible InGaAs position-sensing applications in communication and defense for alignment, nulling, centering, targeting, and guidance systems.
