WALTHAM, Mass, Oct. 18, 2013 — Excelitas Technologies has added two new models to its line of silicon photomultipliers (SiPM) for low-light level detection. The C30742-11-050 and C30742-66-050 are suitable for positron emission tomography (PET) and high-energy physics, and for analytical measurements for fluorescence and fluorescence lifetime detection.
Available in 1 × 1 mm (C30742-11-050) and 6 × 6 mm (C30742-66-050) chip areas, the latest SiPMs provide additional options for OEM applications that require high photon detection efficiency.
Both solutions are based on proprietary avalanche photodiode processes that offer low timing resolution, extremely low dark count and low crosstalk for demanding high-volume applications such as molecular imaging and radiation detection.
The SiPMs were designed for photon detection in the 350- to 850-nm range and offer an alternative to photomultiplier tubes for situations where immunity to electromagnetic fields is crucial. With a large operating voltage range (5-10 V), the 1 × 1 mm and 6 × 6 mm SiPM are available on either ceramic mount or patented leadless laminated carrier surface mount to meet a variety of requirements.
