MCP-PMT for LIDAR Applications
Photonis has launched a new Micro-Channel Plate/PhotoMultiplier Tube (MCP-PMT) for LIDAR applications. MCP-PMTs enable detection from single photon to few GHz in photon burst mode and few 100 MHz in continuous illumination thanks to the high linearity properties. Along with the extremely low dark rate, the new detector is capable of 8 orders of magnitude dynamic range. Unrivaled timing properties, combined with a long lifetime and a high collection efficiency, make these MCP-PMTs an excellent choice for many demanding applications whether it is used in space or in the lab.
