Multi-Element Silicon Photodiodes
Product Announcement from Advanced Photonix, Inc.®
These devices consist of a number of photosensitive areas imaged on a single substrate forming a one-dimensional array with a common cathode substrate. They feature low crosstalk among adjacent elements and high uniformity in response. These types of devices provide a cost effective alternative in applications requiring several photodiodes. In addition, optical filtering can be applied for tuning to particular wavelengths or, in the case of x-ray scanning applications, scintillation crystals that interact to the x-ray energy for provide imaging.
