Hamamatsu to showcase multi-pixel photon counters at SPIE Photonics West 2018
The company's multi-pixel photon counters are designed for various low-light applications.
The company's multi-pixel photon counters (MPPCs; a type of silicon photomultiplier) have sensitivity in the UV, visible (VIS), and near-infrared (NIR) regions, and are designed for various low-light applications. The UV MPPCs have peak sensitivity at 128 nm for high-energy physics; the UV-visible MPPCs have peak sensitivity at 450 nm for scintillation-based applications such as medical imaging; the VIS-NIR MPPCs have peak sensitivity at 600 nm for medical or life science applications; and the NIR-enhanced MPPCs have peak sensitivity at 905 nm for light detection and ranging (lidar) systems.
