Comparison between Hamamatsu S3399 and Perkin Elmer FFD-100
These are the candidates for the BB PD for the green beat detection as well as aLIGO BB PD for 532nm/1064nm.
FFD-100 seems the good candidate.
Basic difference between S3399 and FFD-100
- S3399 Si PIN diode: 3mm dia., max bias = 30V, Cd=20pF
- FFD-100 Si PIN diode: 2.5mm dia., max bias = 100V, Cd=7pF
The circuit at the page 1 was used for the amplifier.
- FFD-100 showed 5dB (= x1.8) larger responsivity for 1064nm compared with S3399. (Plot not shown. Confirmed on the analyzer.)
- -3dB BW: S3399 180MHz, FFD-100 250MHz for 100V_bias. For 30V bias, they are similar.
