Detection of light with a silicon photomultiplier: operation, circuits, and applications

Silicon photomultiplier (SiPM) is a photodetector with many attractive attributes such as very high intrinsic gain, immunity to electromagnetic fields, or low bias voltage. Due to its novel status, a full awareness of the detector’s opto-electronic characteristics, modes of operation, and suitable applications is still lacking. The purpose of the webinar is to increase this awareness among students, engineers, and scientists involved in photodetection, especially of faint sources.


This webinar will provide a thorough overview of silicon photomultipliers (SiPMs) and single-photon avalanche photodiodes (SPADs) for low-light level photodetection. We will discuss how these sensors are designed and operated, as well as the similarities and differences between SiPMs, SPADs, and APDs. Attendees can also expect to learn about the newest versions of these sensors and the variety of applications for which they are suitable, including bioluminescence, flow cytometry, radiation monitoring, high-energy physics, and time-of-flight LiDAR.
