Ion, Electron and Photon Detection plus Imaging Solutions
Enabling technological breakthroughs with innovative imaging and detection solutions, precise instrumentation is a key requirement to measuring and analyzing complex or unknown physical phenomena. Over the last century, many research projects have aimed at better understanding the infinitely small at imperceptible scale.
Whether the application requires ion, electron or photon detection, Photonis has the right solution for you.
Big scientific projects such as synchrotrons or high energy lasers require specific detection systems with highly demanding performances. Experiments performed in modern research labs push the limit of the scientific knowledge.
Quantum optics, fundamental physics, research on plasma all require innovation and capabilities driven by the core competencies of Photonis personnel.
For decades, Photonis has been a key partner of the most famous research labs in the world. Photonis PhDs and qualified engineers help develop new detection and imaging solutions at the frontiers of science!
Whether for space missions or ground-based research, space agencies require from their suppliers the most advanced technologies with an unrivaled level of performance. Space qualification is one of the most demanding requirement in terms of reliability and robustness.
Whatever the type of mission, whether the launch of satellites around the earth or the study of other planets, asteroids, or comets, the support by Photonis to these exploration missions or ground-based stations is unparalleled.
Photonis has long-term partnerships with industry leaders, researchers around the world, and space agencies like NASA and ESA. Thanks to these relationships, Photonis succeeded in creating innovative, custom solutions to provide enhanced performance in space-qualified detectors. Photonis’s innovative solutions enable focusing or collimating X-rays, as well as identifying the composition of asteroids or planetary atmospheres.
Photonis technology supports partners and researchers to observe the behavior of weather, solar winds and auroras; categorize solar flares; and discover distant planets, gamma ray bursts, black holes, and galaxies.
Nowadays, Photonis is also putting its expertise at the service of the new space industry by supporting engineering teams in the design, launch and exploration of Cubesats.
