Introduction to photodetectors (part 2)

July 23, 2020

Photodetectors—such as photodiodes (PDs), avalanche photodiodes (APDs), photomultiplier tubes (PMTs), and silicon photomultipliers (SiPMs)—are essential components in a vast array of modern scientific and commercial instruments and devices; technological progress will make them even more ubiquitous. Understanding their optoelectronic properties, regimes of operation, circuit requirements, and noise characteristics is essential to make a proper photodetector selection for a given application.

Part 2 of this two-part webinar discusses the following topics: 

  • Point photodetectors’ structure and operation
  • Applications
  • Selection of a photodetector
