The Laser 2000 range of in-line pigtailed detectors is for use with visible and infrared laser systems operating within optical fibre. These systems are pigtailed with industry standard connectors for connecting directly to the fibre-optic cable.
Used in conjunction with other fibre-optic components, they can provide a direct feedback of the optical transmission signal, a measurement of fluorescence response in fluorescence systems or alternatively act as the receiver in an optical transmission system.
Three different detector types are offered, a pigtailed silicon detector for visible and near infrared work, an InGaAs PIN photodiode and a Germanium avalanche photodiode for use in the near infrared and infrared.
Laser 2000 offers a range of options for the fibre pigtailed silicon, InGaAs and Germanium photodiodes:
The active area can be 55, 75, 100, 300 or 500 microns. Four types of fibre can be supplied; 9/125 SMF, 50/125 MMF, 62.5/125 MMF or 100/140 MMF, of various lengths (0.5m, 1m, 2m etc.). In addition, there are several options for brackets and fibre connector types.
