  • MPPC® - Silicon Photomultipliers

    The development of MPPCs (Multi-Pixel-Photon-Counter), also known under the synonyms SiPM or Geiger-Mode APD triggered a major change in the field of photon counting detectors. After many years of development, those devices reached a level of maturity, which finally makes them attractive for a wide range of applications.

    This presentation will introduce the basic operation principles of MPPCs, as well as technologies, which eventually improve the performance of those devices significantly. It is also explained, why large area MPPCs arrays are no dream anymore due to the Through-Silicon-Via (TSV) technology, and that nowadays even the VUV and NIR wavelength range can be covered. This finally leads to an understanding, why MPPCs are applicable to various applications outside the scientific community.

  • Distance Measurement

    A LIDAR device works with a pulsed IR laser diode, which sends out short light pulses.

    Some systems are scanning continuously with a mirror and other systems illuminate the whole area at once. The emitted light is reflected from every surface of the obstacles in its path, with a reflection ratio depending on the material and colour. A sensor array detects the returning light, determining the time of flight needed to travel from the light source to the object, and back to the detector. Knowing that the speed of light is 3*108 m/s, this gives the distance of objects. The system can be configured by combining a sensor, such as a PIN-PD, APD, or MPPC, a timer circuit, and a time measurement circuit with a suitable laserdiode or laserdiode array.

  • Flow Cytometry

    Flow cytometry is a technique of quantitative single cell analysis. The properties measured include a particle’s relative size, relative granularity or internal complexity, and relative fluorescence intensity. These characteristics are determined using an optical-to-electronic coupling system that records how the cell or particle scatters incident laser light and emits fluorescence. The major clinical application of flow cytometry is diagnosis of hematologic malignancy, but a wide variety of other applications exist, such as reticulocyte enumeration and cell function analysis.
