Amplifier Hybrids with APD for 600-800 nm
First Sensor has developed and manufactured Hybrids as high speed optical data receivers for a long time, and has gained many years of experience and know-how. Our hybrids incorporate an internal transimpendance amplifier with a PIN or an avalanche photodiode. The amplifier is always adapted to the specific strength of the detector.
High-Performance APD Module with USB Interface
First Sensor presents the further development of its APD module, at the heart of which a low-noise Si Avalanche photodiode with a pre-amplifier and integrated voltage supply is to be found. The module also compensates for the temperature so that operation at a constant amplification with ultra-high reliability across a wide temperature range is possible.
New, Very Small PIN Module for Radiation Detection
First Sensor is expanding its product range in the area of ionizing radiation detection with a radiation detection module that combines a 100 mm² photodiode with an 8 mm CsI:Tl scintillator. The module measures only 17x16x19 mm, detects gamma radiation in the energy range of 150 to 1,500 keV and is optimized for detection of 137Cs. The pulse output allows for very simple integration in instruments used to measure gamma radiation.
Wavelength-Sensitive Photodiodes- WS Series
Wavelength-sensitive photodiodes utilize the effect of the wavelength-specific absorption depth of radiation in silicon. First Sensor´s wavelength sensitive photodiode is a unique photo detector with two vertically stacked p-n junctions in the single silicon crystal. One junction is enhanced for blue sensitivity and the other is enhanced for red sensitivity. Such a configuration is particularly useful for the wavelength detection of monochromatic input signals.
Position Sensitive Diodes (PSDs)
The lateral effect Position Sensitive Detector (PSD) is an optoelectronic device based on Silicon PIN diode technology. The PSD converts the energy from an incident light spot into a continuous, position relative, electrical output current. This position signal is relative to the total incident light pattern and indicates the “optical center” of the incident light.
Quadrant PIN Photodiode: QP154-Q
First Sensor AG is now offering NEW high performance photodetectors for the next generation of SALS (Semi-Active-Laser-Seeker)! We have combined the highest sensitivity, high speed, low noise and low crosstalk into our new range of heated, N-Type quadrant detectors. The integrated heater and temperature sensor allows the detector temperature to be maintained at the optimum level for 1064nm pulsed laser detection. The first standard part is a 14mm diameter detector and others are scheduled to follow. Full customization of both package and detector is possible for your specific application.
We believe that these new heated photodetectors offer the best performance available in the market today

Detectors For Ionizing Radiation
Atomic particles with sufficient kinetic energy and X-rays can be detected directly via their absorption on the crystal lattice or indirectly via scintillators with silicon radiation detectors. This can require very high absorption volumes and extremely low dark currents, in some cases with fully depleted wafers. First Sensor offers solutions for energy-dispersive spectroscopy.
Avalanche Photodiodes (APDs)
First Sensor has a large selection of high sensitivity, high speed and low dark current photodetectors optimized for ultraviolet, visible and infrared light as well as ionizing radiation. Package solutions include surface mount (SMD), through hole (THD) and metal can type (TO) devices
