SINGAPORE, Aug. 9, 2010 — Zecotek Photonics Inc. announced that the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab) in Illinois has contracted with it to develop a custom micropixel avalanche photodiode (MAPD) based on its existing MAPD-3 design.

The new units are required to meet specifications for the European Organization for Nuclear Research’s (CERN) compact muon solenoid Hadron Calorimeter Phase 1 upgrade.

The MAPDs will be developed and delivered through the company’s Singapore-based wholly owned subsidiary, Zecotek Imaging Systems Pte. Ltd.

The photonics technology company develops a range of products, including crystals, photodetectors, lasers, and imaging and 3-D display technologies for medical, biotech, industrial, nanotech and atomic/molecular science applications.
