Planacons Detect More Photons
Planacons from Photonis provide superior immunity to magnetic influence, down to 2T, while providing high quality images. Planacon brings all the high speed, single photon counting features of a traditionally round MCP-PMT, while providing a square sensor, allowing multiple sensors to be tiled together to image large areas.
Planacons are available in two sizes, 53 mm2 and 27 mm2, with a choice of photocathodes to optimize your spectral requirements. Larger Planacons are ideal for use in high energy physics applications to monitor and measure photon activity over a large area. Miniature Planacons can be used in medical devices such as PET scan units. Planacons are also radiation hardened, making them useful in space exploration.
Planacon detectors provide superior immunity from magnetic influence (up to 2 Tesla) and can be equipped with a miniature USB power supply, enabling you to start your research even faster. These features make Photonis’s Planacons an ideal detector in specialized medical imaging devices or in high energy physics research. Planacons are also used for space applications, as the detectors are radiation hard and the dual chevron-configured microchannel plates provide highly efficient and high speed detection in light-starved conditions.
