New Range of Multi-Pixel Photon Counters

Hamamatsu Photonics have introduced their new range of Multi-Pixel Photon Counters (MPPC), the S13360-VE series. These new COB-package type MPPCs incorporate through-hole electrodes called TSV (through-silicon via).

This process optimizes the available space between the sensitive area and the package edge (0.2mm on the four sides), allowing for a four-sided buttable arrangement. The series is available with photosensitive areas of 2 x 2mm, 3 x 3mm and 6 x 6mm, each with a 50 μm pixel pitch. Crosstalk has been reduced and occurrences are down from 44% to just 3%, while after-pulsing affects are minimal. Dark count has also been dramatically reduced to just 0.5 Mcps. The S13360-VE series is optimized for a variety of applications, particularly very low light-level detection, high-energy particle detection and medical imaging.
