Paper Abstract

We will present research on the development of an optical receiver module with a wide frequency bandwidth and excellent response to near-infrared radiation. This module is being produced to promote new imaging modalities, allowing retinal specialist to utilize established diagnostic instruments, such as scanning laser ophthalmoscopes (SLO) in a unique or more effective manner. In particular, it can be applied towards more accurate visual threshold studies in both the healthy and diseased eye. With this goal in mind, measurements of the targeted receiver's performance with and without additional amplification are presented, as is a survey of available APD detectors.
