  • Whenever you fill in the inquiry form on our website we will use the information provided to respond to that request and commence an ongoing dialogue on that topic.


  • We will also ask you to provide an “opt-in” to future contact from AP Technologies. This opt-in will enable us to keep you informed regarding “news” such new suppliers and/or products and "events" such as forthcoming exhibitions.


  • We will also provide you with the facility to “opt-out” of future email broadcast newsletters but of course this opt-out will not prevent us from following up your specific enquiry.

If you only wish to unsubscribe from a particular area then you can do so by any of the methods previously described although we recommend the GDPR form which will allow you to register specific areas of interest.

Hot News

Many of our customers are now aware that KETEK sold their Silicon Photomultiplier (SiPM) assets to the Industrial Fiber Optic Products Division (IFPD) of Broadcom in October 2021. We are pleased to announce that AP Technologies is now working with Broadcom to support the sales of their full range of SiPMs. In addition to the KETEK WB- and WL-series products we will be supplying Broadcom's high performance NUV-HD technology in 3mm, 4mm and 6mm surface mount packages & 4x4 (4mm pitch) array.   Broadcom's NUV-HD SiPMs are available as 3mm, 4mm and 6mm "chip-scale" surface mount components...
QD Laser have introduced a compact fibre-coupled laser module which combines four wavelengths of laser diode into a single fibre output.     The new QLMF02 4-colour module is a just 80mm x 80mm x 30mm and incorporates a thermoelectric cooler for precise temperature control and stabilisation along with a choice of singlemode or polarisation maintaining fibre and an FC/PC or FC/APC connector.   A choice of one of QDL's award-winning QDL0593-series frequency-doubled 532nm, 561nm or 594nm lasers is available. These lasers combine narrow linewidth near infrared DFB/SOA lasers with...
QD Laser have introduced the QLF063x-85A0 series high power deep red laser diodes with a typical wavelength of 685nm at 100mW (25°C).   The QLF063x-85A0 series are based on QD Laser's high reliability Quantum Well structure and offer high efficiency operation with a typical drive current of 125mA (2.35V) and Slope Efficiency of 1.17W/A (5mW-100mW).   Farfield beam divergence is 9° (horizontal) and 14° (vertical) FWHM with beam steer of ±3°.   These laser diodes use industry-standard TO-56 packages with a flat window and internal Monitor Photodiode and are available...
We are pleased to announce the release of KETEK's new generation of high performance Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPMs), the WL-Series. KETEK, based in Munich Germany, are well-established as a supplier of CMOS-based SiPMs offering excellent performance in a rugged MSL1 qualified package and the new range of 3mm-only devices bring improvements in every key operating characteristic. WL-Series SiPMs are available with three microcell pitches of 15µm, 35µm and 47µm - all offer performance enhancements compared with the previous WB-Series but are optimised respectively for...
  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...
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...
