Hamamatsu has been working
with the Photon for more than 50 years. We have established ourselves as the
top company of photoelectron conversion technologies in the world. However,
we have yet to fully grasp the nature of the Photon and its potential. The
more you study, the more you realize how little you know about the Photon
and its applications. That is why we continue to move ahead vigorously with
basic research and apply what we learn to photonics.
APDs are photodiodes with internal gain produced by the application of a reverse voltage. They have a higher signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) than PIN photodiodes, as well as fast time response, low dark current, and high sensitivity.
Solid state photodetectors used for photon counting and other ultra-low-light applications. MPPCs are comprised of a high-density matrix of avalanche photodiodes which, when operated in Geiger mode, generates the high internal gain that enables single photon detection.
Photomultiplier tubes (PMTs) suitable for applications that require high speed, low noise, and high gain. Our PMTs include bare tubes, assemblies, and modules offering a wide selection of photosensitive areas and spectral responses.
Phototubes are photodetectors that feature high sensitivity, superior temperature stability, wide dynamic range, large photosensitive area, and low-voltage operation. Suitable for applications such as chemical and medical analysis and laser measurement.
Hamamatsu Photonics develops and manufactures image sensors with high sensitivity and a wide dynamic range that are ideal for high precision measurement such as spectrophotometry, as well as industrial measurement. To help you select the best devices, we offer a wide product lineup that covers a broad spectral range from the near infrared (NIR) at long wavelengths up to 2.6 um through the visible, ultraviolet, vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) on down to the X-ray wavelength region.
Optical devices comprised of a bundle of micron-sized optical fibers. Used as a lens to transmit light or an image with high efficiency and low distortion. Ideal when designing and building compact optical devices.
Circular or square glass plates ranging from 0.4 to several dozen millimeters thick with fine glass tubing (capillaries) regularly arranged in a two-dimensional array. Excellent linearity, high precision, and selectable directivity.
LCOS-SLM are reflective space light phase modulators that freely modulates light phases. Laser or other irradiation light goes through a phase modulation by the liquid crystal and reflected. The wavefront shape can be controlled freely. Wavefront control of the light can be applied to optical beam photolithography, aberration correction, and the like.
Electromagnetically driven mirrors that incorporate our unique micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) technology. They offer a wide optical deflection angle, high mirror reflectivity, and low power consumption.
Our lamps deliver high stability and long lifetimes. Light measurement technology is utilized in many applications including chemical analysis, medical diagnostic testing, environmental monitoring, and academic research fields.
This product is a surface-emitting semiconductor laser with a photonic crystal structure that features a narrow spot beam pattern (narrow beam spread angle, circular shape) and a narrow spectral linewidth.
