SiPM (silicon photomultipliers) and SPAD (single-photon avalanche photodiodes): Emerging applications for single-photon detection

Slawomir Piatek, PhD, Hamamatsu Corporation and New Jersey Institute of Technology
January 17, 2019

About this webinar

This webinar will provide a thorough overview of silicon photomultipliers (SiPMs) and single-photon avalanche photodiodes (SPADs) for low-light level photodetection. We will discuss how these sensors are designed and operated, as well as the similarities and differences between SiPMs, SPADs, and APDs. Attendees can also expect to learn about the newest versions of these sensors and the variety of applications for which they are suitable, including bioluminescence, flow cytometry, radiation monitoring, high-energy physics, and time-of-flight LiDAR.
