SANTA ROSA, CALIFORNIA, USA, September 23, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — EOC's Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPMs) are silicon-based solid state low level light sensors. They are basically an array of silicon avalanche photo diodes (APDs), each operated in Geiger-mode. This results in the SiPM’s advantages of high gain, low temperature dependency, easy operation and enhanced next generation sensor performance.
EOC's Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPMs) are novel solid-state silicon detectors with single photon counting capability. SiPMs excel in many applications and feature high gain with very low temperature drift, extremely good timing performance at a low operating voltage. They are also insensitive to magnetic fields and stand out with their mechanical robustness. EOC provides cost-effective solutions from high volume applications to customized detector solutions.
SiPMs combine the benefits of vacuum PMTs (high photon detection efficiency, gain and signal-to-noise) with the benefits of APDs (robustness, miniaturized design, low operation voltage, cost-effective and magnetic insensitivity) to an outstanding low level light sensor with an exceptional performance at low cost.
