We are pleased to announce that AP Technologies has been appointed UK and Ireland distributor for KETEK GmbH's range of Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPMs).

 

KETEK, based in Munich Germany, are well-established as the world's leading manufacturer of Silicon Drift Detectors (SDDs) and over recent years have applied their expertise in silicon to developing a range of high performance Silicon Photomultipliers based on technologies developed in-house and with the world famous Fraunhofer Institute.

 

KETEK's Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPMs) surpass the current standard detectors (PMT, APD & PIN photodiodes) in many low light applications and are replacing these in a number of key applications areas such as:-

 

  • Medical Imaging (PET, SPECT, CT)
  • Hazard & Threat Detection
  • LiDAR & 3D Ranging
  • Biophotonics
  • High Energy Physics
  • Sorting & Recycling

 

KETEK SiPMs feature leading edge CMOS wafer fabrication and wafer-level glass-window surface mount packaging to provide key performance benefits:-

 

  • Low operating voltage - less than 30V
  • Tightly controlled breakdown voltage - ±300mV
  • Low temperature dependence of breakdown voltage - 22mV/°C
  • High Gain & SNR
  • Immunity to magnetic fields
  • MRI compatible packaging
  • Small size whilst mechanically and optically robust with no damage from high-light levels
  • Multi-channel arrays can be made with fine pitch resolutions not possible in vacuum PMTs

 

In summary, KETEK SiPMs combine the benefits of vacuum PMTs (high photon detection efficiency, gain and signal-to-noise) with those of APDs (robustness, miniaturised design, low operation voltage, cost-effective and magnetic insensitivity) to produce an outstanding low level light sensor with exceptional performance at low cost.

Opto Diode Corporation have introduced lensed versions of their 265nm and 280nm UVC LEDs.   The new OD-265-003 and OD-280-003 LEDs feature industry-leading chip technology enabling high optical powers of 0.58mW (265nm) and 0.75mW (280nm) at 20mA drive current.   Packaged in industry-standard TO-46 format with a lensed cap both devices offer a narrow beam angle of just 9° FWHM.   Both LEDs incorporate a protection diode to eliminate the risk of damage due to reverse bias.   Opto Diode claim industry-leading reliability with an "L70" (degradation to 70% of initial output)...
OtO Photonics' new RedSparrow (RS) series extends their proprietary MEMS-based grating-collimator technology into the NIR region.   RedSparrow is extremely compact, measuring just 40 x 40 x 18 mm³ (<30cm³) including the removable external control board, dramatically smaller than OtO's own SideWinder C-T NIR spectrometer (~300cm³) which is itself considered to be a compact design.   Despite its compact form-factor RedSparrow's rigid metal package and optical bench provide excellent thermal, humidity and shock/vibration stability performance.   RedSparrow features a...
Opto Diode Corporation have introduced two new UVC LEDs emitting at 265nm and 280nm.   The new OD-265-001 and OD-280-001 LEDs feature industry-leading chip technology enabling high optical powers of 0.85mW (265nm) and 1.2mW (280nm) with a medium beam angle of 70° FWHM.   Packaged in industry-standard TO-46 format with a quartz window cap the LEDs incorporate a protection diode to eliminate the risk of damage due to reverse bias.   Opto Diode claim industry-leading reliability with an "L70" (degradation to 70% of initial output) of greater than 1000 hours when operated at 20mA DC in an...
OtO Photonics' PocketHawk (PH) series are crossed-cavity Czerny-Turner spectrometers operating from 330nm to 1050nm.   PocketHawk offers the performance benefits of classic C-T cavity designs in a significantly reduced package of just 65 x 65 x 25.2mm³ (<107cm³), including the external control board. This is dramatically smaller than OtO's own SmartEngine C-T spectrometer (~300cm³) which is itself considered to be a compact design.   Despite its compact form-factor PocketHawk offers excellent performance with high optical resolution, high sensitivity, low stray light, and...
OtO Photonics' new HummingBird (HB) series are crossed-cavity Czerny-Turner spectrometers operating from 180nm to 1100nm.   HummingBird offers the performance benefits of classic C-T cavity designs in a significantly reduced package of just 83 x 75.5 x 26.75mm³ (<168cm³), dramatically smaller than OtO's own SmartEngine C-T spectrometer (~360cm³) which is itself considered to be a compact design.   Despite its compact form-factor HummingBird sacrifices none of the performance of OtO's highest selling SmartEngine spectrometers and offers high optical resolution, high sensitivity,...
We are pleased to announce that AP Technologies has been appointed UK and Ireland distributor for OtO Photonics' full range of spectrometers, light sources, spectral measurement system, accessories and SpectraSmart software.   OtO Photonics was founded as “OtO Science” in 2006 in Hsinchu City, Taiwan with the objective of leveraging Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS) micro grating technology to develop compact spectrometers. Renamed OtO Photonics in 2010 the company now provides a range of classic Czerny-Turner cavity spectrometers alongside unique microspectrometers based on...
Opto Diode Corporation, an ITW company, introduces the NXIR-5C, a red to near-infrared (NIR) enhanced photodiode with a 5mm² circular active area.   With a spectral response from 320nm to 1100nm the new NXIR-5C SMD photodiode joins Opto Diode's popular NXIR family of near-infrared optimised silicon detectors and provides superior responsivity of 0.62A/W @ 850nm and 0.35A/W at 1064nm with an AR-coated window that provides greater than 98% transmission.   The NXIR-5C has low dark current at 1nA; low capacitance of 5pF at 10V  and a high shunt resistance of greater than...
