4x4 NUV Silicon Photomultiplier (SiPM) in HD Technology


  • Replacing bulky PMT solutions
  • High PDE of more than 55% @ 420 nm
  • High fill factors (pixel and tile)
  • Excellent SPTR and CRT

The AFBR-S4N44P163 is a 4x4-pixel silicon photo multiplier (SiPM) array for the ultra-sensitive precision counting of single photons.

The device makes efficient use of surface area by using through silicon via (TSV) technology, allowing for a high packing density without wires. Larger detector areas can be covered by tiling multiple arrays almost without edge losses.

The detector has a broad response in the visible light spectrum with particular optimization towards blue and near UV light.
