Low-Light-Level Detection Modules
From single photons to mW, from 400nm to 1.7µm, the Excelitas family of Low-Light-Level Detection (L3D) Modules offers industry-leading performance in compact, easy-to-use packages operating from a single 5V DC power supply.
The L3D Modules are ideal for laboratory and OEM use in supporting applications including astronomy, flow cytometry, particle characterization, quantum cryptography, wind LiDAR, and many more.
- Single Photon Counting Modules (SPCMs) - this family of self-contained modules meet the low-light-detection demands of applications in specialized fields like confocal microscopy, luminescence, fluorescence, time-related single photon counting (TCSPC), particle sizing and quantum communications. Products within this family include the SPCM-AQ4C, SPCM-AQRH and SPCM-AQRH-TR and SPCM-NIR.
- Coherent InGaAs PIN Balanced Receiver Module (CIPRM) - this series of balanced optical receivers offers a practical solution for the detection of small changes above the interfering noise floor of incoming optical signals, canceling out the common optical noise. It features high-performance InGaAs photodiodes and a low noise, high gain transimpedance amplifier.
