id150 8 Channel Photon Counter

id150 8 Channel Photon Counter

id Quantique's id150-1x8 is the only multichannel solid-state single photon detector on the market and consists of 8 in-line single photon avalanche diodes that can be accessed simultaneously for parallel processing.

Based on a reliable CMOS silicon chip, the id150 is sensitive in the visible spectral range and is able to detect weak optical signals down to the single photon level.

Offering 40ps timing resolution, low dark count rate and 50ns dead time the id150 is sensitive in the spectral range 350-900nm. The silicon chip of the id150 is packaged in a standard TO8-16pin header with a transparent window cap with the chip mounted on a printed circuit board on top of a single-stage thermoelectric cooler (TEC).
