Avalanche Photodiodes for LIDAR Applications

Avalanche Photodiodes for LIDAR Applications

To meet the growing market of laser based distance measurement, laser scanning and mapping, shape recognition and remote sensing, Avalanche Photodiodes (APD) especially suitable for LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) are needed. Preferentially, APDs are used for applications with very low optical signal strength or with high modulation frequencies, as it is the case with LIDAR.
