Product Announcement from PHOTONIS Technologies SAS
Hybrid Photo Diodes
Hybrid Photo Diodes can be focused by proximity or electrostatically. A fiber-optic entry window is available as an option, to allow the HPD to process signals from scintillating fibers without a signal loss due to the coupling in the connection.
PHOTONIS, in conjunction with CERN, designed a custom Hybrid Photo Diode which has been installed in the Large Hadron Collider beauty (LHCb) project for accelerated particle detection. The HPD is also capable of operation at cryogenic temperatures, making it the ideal tool for Liquid Argon and Xenon detection.
