Position Sensing Detectors (PSD)

The Super Linear Position Sensors feature state of the art duo-lateral technology to provide a continuous analog output proportional to the displacement of the centroid of a light spot from the center, on the active area. As continuous position sensors, these detectors are unparalleled; offering position accuracies of 99% over 64% of the sensing area. These accuracies are achieved by duo-lateral technology, manufacturing the detectors with two separate resistive layer, one located on the top and the other at the bottom of the chip. One or two dimensional position measurements can be obtained using these sensors. A reverse bias should be applied to these detectors to achieve optimum current linearity at high light levels.
