Photodiodes are used for optical sensing in a large variety of operating environments. Problems occur using photodiodes in high temperature environments as optical and electrical performance parameters degrade. High temperature photodiode behavior will be discussed along with methods to mitigate degrading performance and stretch the practical operating temperature range.
