Avalanche Photodiodes (APDs)
Silicon avalanche photodiodes are capable of achieving and sustaining higher gain than traditional APDs because they are fabricated using a deep diffused planar manufacturing process. Our APDs have a high quantum detection efficiency, a wide spectral response, are compact, and are rugged. APDs are also insensitive to magnetic fields, unlike photomultiplier tubes, which allows them to be used in hybrid PET/MRI systems. They are available in discrete devices, arrays, and position sensitive structures. Dynasil produces avalanche photodiodes (APDs) through RMD. Please contact RMD directly to discuss your avalanche photodiode needs.
