Thorlabs' SM05PD1A is a high-speed mounted silicon photodiode with a spectral response from 350-1100 nm. This photodiode has a PIN structure that provides fast Rise/Fall Times (20ns) with a bias voltage of 12V. A external SM05 thread on the main body makes the SM05PD1A compatible with all Thorlabs SM05 mounting adapters.
The SM05PD1A is ideal for measuring both pulsed and CW light sources, by absorption of photons or charged particles and generate a flow of current in an external circuit, proportional to the incident power.
