Multipixel Photon Counter
Feb 2012Vertilon Corp.Request Info
Vertilon Corp. has launched the SIB416 for testing and evaluating the Hamamatsu S11064 multipixel photon counter. It is designed to give researchers and developers a quick way to evaluate the S11064 low-light-level sensor. Multi-pixel photon counters offer a lower-cost, solid-state alternative to photomultiplier tubes in select applications. The S11064 is used in positron emission tomography, single-photon-emission computed tomography, gamma cameras and radiation detection. Designed for direct interface to Vertilon's PhotoniQ charge- integrating DAQ systems, the SIB416 includes all of the electrical and mechanical hardware to support data acquisition from up to 64 input channels from up to four Hamamatsu multipixel photon counters. The S11064 devices mount to the SIB416, and their cathode signals are routed to connectors that interface to charge-integrating preamplifiers in the PhotoniQ DAQ.
