The series FWPR-20 photoreceivers combine low noise Si or InGaAs PIN photodiodes with a specially designed transimpedance amplifier with extremely high gain of up to 1012 V/A and very low noise. This unique combination results in a photoreceiver with Femtowatt sensitivity due to its exceptional low NEP of 0.7 fW/√Hz. Direct detection of optical powers down to ca. 50 fW is possible without the need for further averaging behind the receiver.
Due to their very high sensitivity the FEMTO FWPR-20 series photoreceivers can replace APDs, PMTs and cooled Ge photodiodes in many applications. No expensive high voltage power supply or cooling is required.
The FWPR-20-SI offers high quantum efficiency in the visible and near infrared similar to that of APD based single photon counting modules. In applications where timing is uncritical, e.g. when the signal of a photon counter is integrated for a few 10 ms or more, the FWPR-20-SI photoreceiver achieves a comparable signal-to-noise ratio at a fraction of the cost.
For NIR spectroscopy the InGaAs model FWPR-20-IN achieves similar results as a much more expensive and complex system based on a liquid nitrogen cooled Germanium detector with external amplifier. As a result of the already integrated very low noise, high gain amplifier, signals in the Volt range can be achieved directly at the output of the FWPR-20 Femtowatt photoreceiver.
