About the material (Aluminium)Gallium Nitride (Al)GaN

(Al)GaN is a new semiconductor material for visible blind UV photodiodes. By modification of the Al – to – Ga stoichiometry it is possible to produce photodiodes with different spectral behaviour. This allows photodiodes to be offered which are suitable for broad band UV (UVA+UVB+UVC), for UVB-only or for UVC only, without using a filter.
