App note: Introduction to the silicon photomultiplier (SiPM)

App note from ON Semiconductors about SiPM sensors, explaining the working principle and primary performance parameters. Link here (PDF) The Silicon Photomultiplier (SiPM) is a sensor that addresses the challenge of sensing, timing and quantifying low-light signals down to the single-photon level. Traditionally the province of the Photomultiplier Tube (PMT), the Silicon Photomultiplier now offers […]
