GaN and SiC UV Detectors

Product Announcement from Advanced Photonix, Inc.®

GaN and SiC UV Detectors-Image

These UV, Gallium Nitride (GaN) and Silicon Carbide (SiC), sensors are intended for use in the spectral region of 200 nm to 400 nm where maximum quantum efficiency is required at these wavelengths. These devices are more robust in their resistance to UV degradation than traditional silicon photodiodes while providing greater photocurrent at shorter wavelengths.
