Albis presents its new high power, highly linear microwave photodetector, designed for direct optical-to-electrical conversion of RF-modulated optical signals at 20 GHz. The small, rugged and hermetic PQW package makes the detector suitable for installation in systems operated under severe environmental conditions.
The photodiode inside this module is a high power, high linearity Albis photodiode chip, designed to operate over a wide range of wavelengths from 1260 to 1620 nm. This photodiode is also available mounted on an AlN carrier. It offers a typical bandwidth of 22 GHz for photocurrents up to 50 mA, a responsivity of 0.5 A/W and high linearity of +30 dBm OIP3 @ 20 GHz, 30 mA. Typical applications include analog optical links, microwave photonics and radio-over-fiber.
