Hamamatsu Corp. has unveiled the S10362-11 series multipixel photon counter, a Geiger-mode avalanche photodiode detector of ultralow-level light in applications such as positron emission tomography, high-energy physics, DNA sequencing, fluorescence measurement and environmental analysis. The device has an active pixel area of 1 × 1 mm and is available in 100-, 400- or 1600-pixel counts. Each pixel has a quenching circuit so that simultaneous photon events can be counted separately and accurately. Other features include gain of approximately 1 × 106, high photon detection efficiency, peak sensitivity at 400 nm, operation at less than 100 V and a choice of TO-18 or ceramic packaging.
