|The performance of sglux photodiodes
sg lux Schottky-type TiO 2 UV-photodiodes are inherently visible blind, being sensitive to ultraviolet radiation below = 400 nm only and not to visible light.
Due to the polycrystalline nature of our thin-film semiconductor the production effort scales only weakly with the chip's size. We therefore try to fit the largest possible photoactive area into the TO housings, giving many benefits like a large photocurrent and only a weak dependency on the incident angle.
The polycrystalline nature is also responsible for the superior UV-radiation hardness. The disadvantages compared to monocrystalline devices should not remain unmentioned: The response time is as long as 100 μs and the quantum efficiency does not exceed 20%.
However, the low sensitivity is easily over-compensated by the large photoactive area. You get more photocurrent for your money with sg lux .
The UV photodiodes based on our TiO2 Semiconducter technologie are:
TW30SX , TW30SY , EryF , TW30DZ , TW30DY , TW30DY2
