Excelitas Technologies’ Solid State Silicon Photomultiplier Technology Ideal for Low Light Level Detection Applications

Excelitas Technologies has announced that its solid state silicon photomultipliers (SiPMs) technology has achieved breakthrough photon detection efficiency (PDE) levels and minimal dark counts.

The silicon photomultipliers play a vital role in the company’s low light level detection range of products and technologies targeted to meet the demands of the analytical and medical markets.

The published results were presented in Geneva at the “CERN Industry-Academia Matching Event on SiPM and Related Technologies,” held in February 2011.

Excelitas had partnered with Max Planck Innovation in 2009 with regard to the licensing of its high speed SiPM technology. Offering high PDE, instantaneous response time and exceptionally low power usage, the silicon photomultipliers are suitable for use in fluorescence and molecular imaging where low light levels are required.

The Senior Vice President and General Manager of Excelitas’ global detection business, Michael Ersoni stated that the company is focusing on expanding its low light level detection products to meet the growing demands of clinical diagnostics, life sciences and analytical instrument applications.

Excelitas Technologies will showcase its wide range of low light level detection and light emission products at the Georgia World Congress Centre, which will host the Pittcon 2011 from 13 to 18 March, 2011.
