Ultra-compact photomultiplier device

Paul Boughton

Hamamatsu Photonics KK has developed a new multi-alkali photocathode that will provide high near-infrared sensitivity for its next-generation Micro PMT.

The Micro PMT is an ultra-compact photomultiplier device that is manufactured with semiconductor manufacturing technology and can be produced in high volumes.

The latest version of the Micro PMT featuring the new multi-alkali photocathode will be available as three products: the H12400-01-01 Micro PMT assembly with built-in voltage divider circuit, and the H12403/H12402 series Micro PMT modules with built-in ultra-compact power supply.

Each product is designed to be easily integrated into instruments, and is expected to help the development of high-precision personal-use instruments in applications such as medical diagnostics and environmental monitoring.
