Photek photodiodes are the fastest in the world, with pulse rise times to 36 ps and pulse FWHM to 55 ps. Used to detector ultra-fast optical events, photodiodes generate an electrical output when illuminated by light. Because these detectors do not contain a microchannel plate electron multiplier, these are unity gain devices capable of working over a large dynamic range, without any degradation. Photodiodes are available in 10 mm, 25 mm, or 40 mm configurations. These photodiodes can be used for examining sub-nanosecond optical pulses, optical triggering, and nuclear research applications.
