Albis launches a 30GHz short-wavelength photodetector

Albis Optoelectronics AG of Zurich, Switzerland, which designs and manufactures high-speed PIN and APD photodiodes for fiber-optic datacom and telecom applications, has announced the availability of the PQW30A-S, a hermetically packaged, short-wavelength, 30GHz RF photodetector.

This small-sized, pigtailed device is used for the detection of RF-modulated optical signals and combines unique features such as an integrated bias-T, a high-responsivity gallium arsenide (GaAs) photodiode as well as a hermetic enclosure. The combination of these features makes this a one-of-a-kind device that has not been commercially available so far, claims the firm. Key customers are awaiting shipment of the first units, expected for mid-April.

“The addition of PQW30A-S to our family of PQW products strenghtens our position in the market for high-speed RF photodetectors,” reckons chief technology officer Markus Blaser. “It also underlines our goal to expand our portfolio of packaged detectors that integrate our field-proven high-speed photodiodes,” he adds.

Albis is exhibiting in booth 3548 at the Optical Fiber Communication Conference & Exposition/
National Fiber Optic Engineers Conference (OFC/NFOEC 2013) at the Anaheim Convention Center, California (17–21 March).
