The AFBR-S4N44P163 is a 4×4-pixel NUV (near ultraviolet) silicon photomultiplier (SiPM) array developed in high-density technology[1] for the ultra-sensitive precision measurement 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 NUV light. A thin glass layer that is highly transparent down to UV wavelengths protects the array, making it well suited for the detection of scintillation or Cherenkov light from the most common scintillators such as LSO, LYSO, GSO, BGO, NaI, CsI, BaF, and LaBr.
