KETEK Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPMs) are silicon-based solid state low level light sensors. They are an array of silicon avalanche photo diodes (APDs), each operated in Geiger-mode. This results in the SiPM’s advantages of high gain, low temperature dependency, easy operation and enhanced next generation sensor performance.
SiPM (Silicon Photomultiplier) features include:
- Single photon resolution
- High photon detection efficiency
- High gain and high signal to noise ratio
Applications include Medical Imaging, Biophotonics, High Energy Physics, Lidar & 3D Imaging, Hazard/Threat Detection and Sorting/Recycling.
