PGA-600HSX 100 MHz Single Photon Benchtop Receiver
The Princeton Lightwave 100 MHz Single Photon Benchtop Receiver is a complete solution for single photon counting applications that require very high counting rate. The receiver integrates a Princeton Lightwave premium grade (ultra-high sensitivity) InGaAs/InP Single Photon Avalanche Diode (SPAD) with all the necessary bias and control electronics. The SPAD design has been optimized specifically for single photon counting to provide high detection efficiency and low dark count rate. The unit’s electronics utilize patented biasing and detection techniques to achieve the highest performance. The front panel of the unit displays the number of photons detected in a selected interval as well as other operational and diagnostic information. All operating parameters and values can also be accessed through the RS-232 interface enabling automation of single photon measurement systems. The receiver is configured in a standard 3U 19-inch rack mount chassis.
