OEM PRODUCTS


Photonis Advanced Performance Detectors (APDs) are plug-and-play electo-optic assemblies which provide a complete housing, facilitating manufacturing assembly, repair or replacement to mass spectrometers and other machines. Available for new machines or as replacement cartridges for existing models, over 200 types, with cartridge-mounted MCP, further simplifying additional repairs.

PHOTONIS Advanced Performance Detectors (APDs) satisfy applications ranging from mass spectrometry to UV and X-ray astronomy. Most of these detector assemblies are designed for use in ultra-high vacuum systems and the 300°C temperatures reached during chamber cleaning, therefore saving time that would otherwise be required to remove the detector. Readout schemes - including photodiode array, phosphor screen, CCD camera, or direct electrical signal - are available.

DESCRIPTION


Each one Photonis’ Advanced Performance Detectors (APDs) are equipped with one of our LongLifeTM or MountingPadTM microchannel plates. MCPs range in size from 4 to 120mm and can be designed in many different shapes to fit into the APD. Mounting options include conflat and metric flanges, front-, rear- or side-mountable, feed-throughs, keyed hardware and SMA connectors. Other customization options include center hole, center tab, grid, metal (or multi metal) anode, resistive anode encoder, phosphor screen, and the option for a CMOS camera being mounted to the APD itself. Advanced Performance Detectors are used in some the world’s fastest Time-of-Flight detectors, in physics research experiments and on space missions. They are known to provide maximum sensitivity to enable detection of very low levels of photons, electrons, or ions. With Photonis’ APDs, you will be the first to discover.

Learning Highlight

 

Developing Micro-Miniature MCP-Based Detectors for Portable Mass Spec

Photonis has adapted the power of our Advanced Performance Detector into a sub-miniature version, called the QUANTUM™ Sub-Miniature APD. It is less than 9mm in diameter and can produce a gain of at least 100x.
