KETEK GmbH., 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.
At the core of every KETEK SiPM is a low light sensing silicon photodiode capable of converting single photons into a measurable output signal. KETEK uses state-of-the-art CMOS fabrication techniques to manufacture these sensors - providing excellent sensitivity and device-to-device uniformity.
SiPMs are replacing conventional APDs and vacuum tube PMTs in a number of key applications areas:-
- Medical Imaging
- Hazard & Threat Detection
- LiDAR & 3D Ranging
- High Energy Physics
- Sorting & Recycling
