UV wavelengths detection SiC detectors
Silicon Carbide (SiC) detectors manufactured by ifw optronics are available from Laser Components. They are particularly well suited for the detection of UV light. Their spectral sensitivity is limited to the range between 205 nm and 355 nm. Visible and long-wave radiation components therefore do not cause any disturbing background noise. Moreover, these photodiodes are particularly robust. Even high doses (up to 1000 W/m2) or application at high temperatures only have a minor influence on the detector performance. Their detection range can be further narrowed by using appropriate filters.
