Sydor Technologies has been awarded an $1.15 million Phase II SBIR grant from the U.S. Department of Energy to continue development of a fast photodiode used in labs for laser characterization, synchrotrons and fusion experiments.
The grant also provides for the continuation of the Rochester-based company’s work with the Laboratory for Laser Energetics at the University of Rochester that focuses on expanded research opportunities.
The fast photodiode – which is a device that generates current when exposed to light – will benefit fusion and high energy density physics facilities, such as LLE, conducting ultra-fast timing experiments that require good quantum efficiency in deep UV and x-ray regimes, the company reported.
The fast photodiode fills a niche requirement in fast timing measurements that is not currently met, according to Valerie Fleischauer, principal investigator and development scientist at Sydor Technologies.
“Bringing this to the market offers a solution for laboratories that are not able to secure larger and more costly timing measurement technologies and will allow researchers the opportunity to increase the lines of sight that are monitored in experiments,” she said.
