The SPCM-NIR single-photon counting module optimized for the near-infrared is designed to support long-range lidar, quantum communication, and microscopy applications. It uses a silicon avalanche photodiode with peak detection efficiency at 780 nm, typically better than 73%, while maintaining uniformity over a 180-μm-diameter active area. It has gated output and a single 5 V power supply.
