Position-sensitive detectors (PSDs)

PSDs are optoelectronic position sensors that utilize photodiode surface resistance. Unlike discrete element detectors such as CCDs, PSDs provide continuous position data, high position resolution, and high-speed response.

One-dimensional PSDs have a long, narrow photosensitive area and detect positions in a longitudinal direction. Suitable for use in displacement meters and other high precision distance measurement applications, such as optical switches.

PSDs for two-dimensional position detection are available in double-sided and front-side segmented models.

Easy-to-use PSD modules integrate our PSDs with a current-to-voltage conversion circuit.
