Advanced Photonix, Inc. is a leading supplier of opto-electronic solutions and Terahertz sensors and instrumentation to a global OEM customer base. Our solutions are based on our patented high speed optical receivers in III-V materials in APD and PIN configurations and silicon Large Area Avalanche Photodiode (LAAPD), PIN photodiode and FILTRODE® detectors. The Terahertz sensor product line is targeted to the Nondestructive Testing (including Baggage/Cargo Scanning) and Quality Control markets. Using our patented fiber coupled technology and high speed Terahertz generation and detection sensors we are transferring Terahertz from the application development laboratory to the factory floor.
API supports the customer from the initial concept by the designing of the semiconductor, hybridization of support electronics, packaging and signal conditioning or processing from prototype through full-scale production and validation/test. Our served markets are: Telecom, Homeland Security, Military, Medical, and Industrial/NDT.
