Elettra has developed a new amplifier specifically dedicated to detectors (i.e. output photodiode, lasers, etc.) where the signal amplitude is extremely low and where pulses fall and rise time is higher than 4 ns. This amplifier gains more than 60 dB.
The instrument has an additional low pass filter (customizable on request) to cut-off noise at high frequency (minimum cut-off frequency is 136 MHz).
This advanced silicon technology grants high dynamic range and low noise figure needed to fulfill the requirements on frequency response measurements (see technical specifications on the other side).
The instrument is provided with in/out 50 Ohm connectors, so that it is compatible with many systems commercially available, in particular with systems like delay lines (wires or strip lines), where the 50 Ohm matching is fundamental.
The preamplifier is hosted in a mechanical box that properly screens the electronics from external perturbation.
The RF low noise and wide bandwidth amplifier has been expressly developed to deal with typical pulses generated on MCP or channeltron detectors.
The advanced silicon technology employed grants high dynamic range and low noise figure needed to amplify pulses whose rise and fall time is lower than 4 ns (see technical specifications o the other side).
The instrument is provided with in/out 50 Ohm connectors compliant to standard systems, in particular with delay lines (wires or strip lines) where the 50 Ohm matching is needed.
The preamplifier is hosted in a mechanical box that properly screens its electronics from external perturbation.
Besides, a modified version of this amplifier, to be used with detectors generating extremely low intensity pulses, has been developed. Further information on this product is available on RUD-RFLN-XLS Pulse Amplifier data sheet.
All used components for Pulse Amplifier are RoHS compliance certified.
