The Planacon™ family of products are square-shaped MCP-PMTs designed to capture fast timing events such as those found in single photon counting applications. Planacons provide superior immunity to magnetic influence, down to 2T, while providing high quality images. Photonis' Planacon brings all the high speed, single photon counting features of a traditionally round MCP-PMT...
PHOTONIS’ Advanced Performance Detectors (APDs) are plug-and-play electo-optic assemblies which provide a complete housing, facilitating manufacturing assembly, repair or replacement to mass spectrometers and other machines. APDs are available for new machines or as replacement cartridges for existing models.
Over 200 types are currently available. APDs are available with cartridge-mounted microchannel plates, further simplifying additional repairs.
Channeltron® Electron Multipliers are durable and efficient detectors of positive and negative ions as well as electrons and photons. PHOTONIS’ electron multipliers also offer the highest dynamic range to assure an absolutely linear response beyond the limits of most analytical instruments.
Channeltrons® are available in a variety of shapes and sizes including the MAGNUM®, Spiraltron, miniature and support standard and high-pressure applications.
PHOTONIS’ patented ELECTROGEN™ Electron Generator Arrays (EGAs) consist of millions of precision glass tubes fused together to produce a uniform and mechanically rigid structure. They are processed such that, when a voltage is applied across the thickness, each pore produces a beam of electrons. Because each of the millions of pores produce electrons, the resultant electron flux is extremely uniform and dense.
EGAs can be used as the electron source in electron impact ionization source applications. This technology has the advantage of performing as a cold ionization source, which eliminates pyrolytic effects that occur when the heat generated by the filament chemically changes the unknown substances to be identified.
The PHOTONIS Hybrid Photo Diode provides an alternate technique for photon detection. The HPD amplifies an electron in a vacuum tube and bombards it onto a silicon diode. For each impact, a gain of between 2000 and 3000 is achieved. A diode array converts the signal to pixels. Hybrid Photo Diodes can be focused by proximity or electrostatically. A fiber-optic entry window is available as an option, to allow the HPD to process signals from scintillating fibers without a signal loss due to the coupling in the connection.
