  • Newark Part No.: 93C9593
  • Manufacturer Part No BPW20RF

Product Overview

The BPW20RF is a planar silicon PN Photodiode designed for high precision linear applications. Due to its extremely high dark resistance, the short circuit photocurrent is linear over seven decades of illumination level. On the other hand, there is a strictly logarithmic correlation between open circuit voltage and illumination over the same range. Equipped with a clear, flat glass window, the spectral responsivity reaches from blue to near infrared.
  • High photo sensitivity
  • High radiant sensitivity
  • Suitable for visible and near infrared radiation
  • Flat glass window
  • UV enhanced
  • Low dark current
  • High shunt resistance
  • High linearity
