30 Years of Photodiode Experience

Development of the Albis state-of-the-art photodiodes started in the mid-eighties at the Institute of Quantum Electronics at ETH, the world-renowned Zurich University of Technology. The advanced product technology soon caught interest and first customers started field-deployment of the ETH photodiode technology at the beginning of the nineties. After a spin-off from ETH in 1995, Albis photodiodes were made available to a broad customer base fulfilling their stringent requirements on product performance and quality. Customers today still benefit from this long history of product development and can rely on photodiodes with long life spans that show little wear out and no random failures.
