50 GHz Linear InGaAs PIN Photodetector (R-PD-50-W)

Data Sheet

Product Overview

The Optilab R-PD-50-W is a highly linear, 50 GHz bandwidth InGaAs PIN photodetector that is ideal for use in O/E front-ends requiring wide band frequency response. The coplanar waveguide photodiode design optimizes speed and sensitivity for the 1260 nm through 1610 nm wavelength range, and assures a 50 GHz frequency response necessary for digital and analog applications. The front-illuminated mesa-structured PIN design allows a high input power level of up to +6 dBm. The R-PD-50-W is available in a standard butterfly package with V-connector output for ease of assembly, and can be ordered with ready to use module.
