Why Pulse Rise & Fall Times Differ in Photodetector Measurement

Check out the new white paper by Electro-Optics Technology (EOT) called, “Why Pulse Rise & Fall Times are Different in Photodetector Measurement“. This paper reviews factors that contribute to output pulses of PIN photodetectors causing them to have a longer fall time than rise time. Factors include photocarrier transit effects, diffusion current, saturation, and circuit design. To … Continue reading
