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...
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...
