  Single Channel Detectors

The Photomultiplier Tube (PMT)
PMT detectors typically offer much higher sensitivity than solid state detectors and operate effectively in the UV/VIS and NIR. However, typically their spectral coverage is limited to about 950 nm. PMT detectors also require high voltage power supplies. The PMT detectors offered by HORIBA Jobin Yvon are high quality PMTs in ambient or water cooled housings and head-on or side-on configurations.

Solid State Detectors

Solid state detectors are opto-electronic devices used to convert incident photons to electronic signals. Available with wavelength ranges from below 200 nm to beyond 20 µm, solid state detectors offer sensitivity, dependability, cost and efficiency. Jobin Yvon has a large number of solid state detectors that cover any application. They are available as ambient, thermoelectric, or liquid nitrogen cooled depending on your sensitivity needs.
