Radiation Detection

Nuclear medicine, medical imaging, fluorescence detection, and high energy and particle physics all benefit from Excelitas' Large-Area Silicon Avalanche Photodiodes (APDs). 

Whether used for low light level detection, detection of direct radiation of X-Rays, or they are easily-coupled to scintillators for hard X-Rays or Gamma Ray detection, Excelitas' Large-Area Si APDs provide the high performance needed for radiation detection. Their benefits include exceptionally low noise, high quantum efficiency, good energy resolution, high count rates, good linearity and good timing resolution.

Did You Know?

Avalanche photodiodes are insensitive to magnetic fields found in MRI systems or large accelerators.
