***** NEW ***** VIS photon counter with 1Hz noise



Improved photon counters break the 1 Hz noise barrier Geneva – November 16, 2006


id Quantique has announced the release of ultra-low noise single photon counting modules for the visible spectral range. A state-of-the-art dark count rate of less than 1Hz (20Hz) is offered for 20um (50um, respectively) diameter devices. Beside an outstanding noise level, the other salient features of the company’s successful id100 series are upheld: best-in-class timing resolution of only 40ps, short dead time of 45ns, compact and robust enclosure, long-term stability and reliability thanks to a CMOS fabrication process.

Already available for sale, these modules set a new standard in photon counting applications, providing a major boost in signal-to-noise ratio to customers looking for the ultimate detector sensitivity level.
