Photodetectors Shed Light on Optical Sensing (.PDF Download)

Light is a form of electromagnetic (EM) energy that plays an important role in battlefield activities. It is being used, for example, for directed-energy weapons using high-power lasers, and is the basis for a number of different detection methods used both for tracking lasers and munitions guidance. In support of such applications is the YAG series of silicon PIN quadrant photodetector diodes from Excelitas. They provide excellent sensitivity and responsivity over the infrared (IR) range of
