About This Webinar
This webinar will provide a thorough overview of silicon photomultipliers (SiPMs) and single-photon avalanche photodiodes (SPADs) for low-light level photodetection. We will discuss how these sensors are designed and operated, as well as the similarities and differences between SiPMs, SPADs, and APDs. Attendees can also expect to learn about the newest versions of these sensors and the variety of applications for which they are suitable, including bioluminescence, flow cytometry, radiation monitoring, high-energy physics, and time-of-flight lidar.

Slawomir S. Piatek, Ph.D., Hamamatsu consultant.About the presenter:
Slawomir S. Piatek is a senior university lecturer of physics at New Jersey Institute of Technology. As a science consultant at Hamamatsu Corporation in N.J., he has developed a photonics training program for engineers. Also at Hamamatsu, he is involved in popularizing SiPM as a novel photodetector by writing and lecturing about this technology and by experimenting with the device. Piatek has a Ph.D. in physics from Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey.
