Silicon carbide (SiC) UV photodiodes

offer unbeatable advantages over Si, TiO2 GaN or diamond based devices:
  • Sunblind: spectral response in range of 200 to 400 nm only
  • Proven outstanding long term stability under high dosis of UV-C- radiation (up to 1000 Wm-2)
  • Excellent temperature stability (temperature coefficient Tk < 0,06 %/K), operating temperature up to +150 °C)
  • Offered with radiation-hard and space approved filters for UV-A, UV-B and UV-C.
  • Custom filter options with specific low-, high- or band-pass characteristics
  • Integrated amplifier option
  • In-house SiC chip production since 2008
  • Typical applications of SiC photodiodes: flame control, water disinfection, laser-monitoring and erythema-sensors
Please note that the unique characteristics and high performance of our SiC photodiodes are a result of the UV-proven assembly technology and the consequent development and improvement of our SiC chips. No competitor offers a wider selection of electro-optical components based on SiC like ifw optronics. Among more than 100 different types of SiC-components, you will find the best suited solution for your photodiode or sensor application.
