SensL's R-series of SiPMs can detect 10 per cent of the photons returning at 905nm--'that's market leading, Appelman stated.
Ireland-based SensL, which was acquired by On Semiconductor in May for an undisclosed fee, makes single-photon avalanche diodes (SPADs) and silicon photomultiplier (SiPM) detectors.
He added that a 120 X 30-degree system will need 6,000W of laser power to achieve 200-metre ranging with SiPM technology.
22 000 scintillator tiles, each with its own silicon photomultiplier (SiPM
), measure the passing particles, and in contrast to previous prototypes everything is included in the structure: photosensors, readout chips, LEDs for calibration, voltage adjustment, trigger, storage, amplifiers, energy and time digitisers, you name it.
(iv) The tracking plane, made of SiPMs arranged into dice boards (DBs), described in Section 3.2.4.
The chosen SiPMs are the S10362-11-050P model by Hamamatsu.
The SiPMs will be mounted in dice boards (DBs), identical to those prototyped in NEXT-DEMO (see Section 5.1).
In order to cover the whole field cage cross section with a pitch between sensors of 1 cm, we need ~8000 SiPMs. The design of the DBs and the front-end electronics have been made at IFIC and UPV.
On Semiconductor has acquired SensL Technologies, a producer of silicon photomultipliers (SiPM), single photon avalanche diodes (SPAD) and lidar sensing products.
Based in Ireland, SensL's SPADs and SiPM detectors are designed for long-range lidar, with the company claiming they will allow lidar systems to operate at a range of 200 metres or more.
The primary path to these goals is to replace PhotoMultipliers (PMTs) with Silicon-PMs (SiPM
SensL develops single-photon avalanche diodes (SPADs) and silicon photomultiplier (SiPM
) detectors, which it says will enable lidar systems to operate at a range upwards of 200 metres.
