Linear array PMT modules by Hamamatsu

Hamamatsu H11451, H11459 and H11460 series linear array photomultiplier tube (PMT) modules

The H11451, H11459 and H11460 series linear array photomultiplier tube (PMT) modules from Hamamatsu (Bridgewater, NJ) offer high cathode sensitivity, high gain, and high-speed response for biomedical fluorescence applications, spectroscopy, environmental monitoring, and laser scanning detection. The modules contain a multichannel PMT along with a preamplifier and high-voltage power supply circuit. Rise times range from 0.6 to 0.7 ns, and five spectral response ranges—185–650, 185–880, 300–650, 300–880 and 300–920 nm—are available.

Hamamatsu introduces new linear array PMT modules

Hamamatsu's new linear array photomultiplier tube (PMT) modules offer high cathode sensitivity, high gain, and high-speed response (fast rise time and narrow transit time spread). The PMT modules contain a multichannel PMT along with a preamplifier and high voltage power supply circuit. Suitable applications range from biomedical fluorescence applications to laser scanning detection to analytical applications such as spectroscopy and environmental monitoring.

The H11451 series features 8 channels in a linear format with each channel's photosensitive area measuring 2.0 (W) x 2.5 (H) mm. These PMT modules are characterized by good anode uniformity, low crosstalk, and a fast rise time of 0.7 ns. Two spectral response ranges are available: 300-880 nm (peak at 420 nm) and 300-920 nm (peak at 630 nm).

The H11459 series features 16 linear channels. Each channel's photosensitive area is 0.8! (W) x 16 (H) mm. The H11460 series features 32 channels in a linear format with 0.8 (W) x 7 (H) mm photosensitive area per channel. Both series feature a fast rise time of 0.6 ns and a transit time spread of 0.18 ns (FWHM). For both series, there are five spectral response ranges to choose from: 185-650 nm, 185-880 nm, 300-650 nm, 300-880 nm, and 300-920 nm.
