Abstract : The patent describes a small, easily constructed, high speed, coaxially connected, photodiode mount constructed by modifying two conventional seven-millimeter coaxial connectors so as to position the diode in the end of one connector. The flanges of the connectors are positioned in back-to-back relationship with insulation between them to form a coupling capacitor. The photodiode bias potential is impressed on the photodiode by making electrical connections to the flanges. A coaxial cable signal lead is conventionally connected to the other flange. The mount is held in a light and electric field shielding tube by insulating screws through holes in the flanges.
