   NEWPORT 818-UV   Description / Specification:    
NEWPORT 818-UV 190 to 1100 nm Low-Power Silicon Cylindrical Detector

The Newport 818-UV Low-Power Silicon Cylindrical Detector optics are designed to address the problems associated with measuring coherent light. In ordinary detectors, coherent light causes reading errors across the detector surface and measurements are more sensitive to thermal drift. This results in an additional, unreported 5% to 8% calibration uncertainty when making laser power measurements. Newport’s detector design eliminates these problems for stable, uniform detector response. Specifications. Spectral Range: 0.19–1.1 µm. Power, Average Max w/ Attenuator: 0.2 W/cm^2. Power, Average Maximum w/o Attenuator: 0.2 mW/cm^2. Pulse Energy, Maximum - w/ Attenuator: 0.10 µJ/cm^2. Pulse Energy, Maximum - w/o Attenuator: 0.1 nJ/cm^2. Accuracy at constant temperature: ±7% @ 0.19; ±2% @ 0.20-1.1. Uniformity: ±2%. Linearity: ±0.5%. Saturation Current: 0.1 mA/cm^2. Responsivity: >=0.09 A/W, 250–1000 nm. Responsivity (Peak): >0.4 A/W @ 850 ± 100 A/W. Rise Time: <= 2 µs. Shunt Resistance: >=2 M-Ohm (typ). Die Capacitance: 8,800 pF. Reverse Bias, Maximum: 100 V. Material: Silicon.

Coherence Length
Average distance over which superimposed waves lose their phase relationships

Linewidth is the width of a spectral line in terms of wavelength, wave number and frequency.

Power Flatness Versus Wavelength
When changing the wavelength at constant power setting and recording the differences between actual and displayed power levels, the power flatness is ± half the span (in dB) between the maximum and the minimum of the measured power levels.

Spectral Width
Spectral Width is the wavelength interval over which the magnitude of all spectral components is equal to or greater than a specified fraction of the magnitude of the component having the maximum value. In optical communications applications, the usual method of specifying spectral width is the full width at half maximum. This is the same convention used in bandwidth, defined as the frequency range where power drops by less than half (at most -3 dB).

Telecom Bands
Optical fiber communications typically operate in a wavelength region corresponding to one of the following Bands. O Band (original): 1260–1360 nm. E Band (extended): 1360–1460 nm. S Band (short wavelengths): 1460–1530 nm. C Band (conventional): 1530–1565 nm. L Band (long wavelengths): 1565–1625 nm. U Band (ultralong wavelengths): 1625–1675 nm
