Rueschlikon, 8 February 2022 – Albis Optoelectronics announced today that its PQS40A-L was recognized among the best by the 2023 Lightwave Innovation Reviews. An esteemed and experienced panel of judges from the optical communications community recognized Albis Optoelectronics as a high-scoring honoree.
“On behalf of the Lightwave Innovation Reviews, I would like to congratulate Albis Optoelectronics on their high-scoring honoree status,” said Lightwave Editorial Director, Stephen Hardy. “This competitive program allows Lightwave to celebrate and recognize the most innovative products impacting the optical communications community this year.”
The photodetector PQS40A-L features an exceptionally high responsivity of 0.8 A/W combined with a bandwidth of 40 GHz and high linearity up to an average photocurrent of 10 mA. The optical input is supplied through a single-mode fibre pigtail with an angled polished, low-reflection FC/APC connector. The bias voltage is supplied by DC pins through the internal bias-tee. The RF K-connector output is DC coupled and matched to 50 Ω with a high electrical return loss of at least 5 dB up to 35 GHz. The compact, rugged and hermetic package makes the detector ideal for installation in systems with limited space, operated under severe environmental conditions.
Judges comment: “The PQS40A-L is a very capable RF output photodiode. It could form the heart of an optical-to-electrical conversion for a range of applications. The combination of bandwidth and responsivity is excellent.”
