AUREA Technology reveals the newly designed SPD_A_M2, the world's first all-in-one DUAL single photon counting module. The SPD_A_M2 is ultra low noise and high QE NIR single photon detectors.

The [900 nm to 1,700 nm] detectors' Geiger-mode InGaAs avalanche photodiode and thermoelectric coolers ensure a low and stable dark count, with a performance superior to 5.0 x 10-6 per ns. Thanks to its exceptional sensitivity in high level detections, the SPD_A largely surpasses photomultipliers, or PMTs. While most photomultipliers count a QE below 1% in near infrared, the SPD_A boasts a QE that is adjustable up to 25%.

The SPD_A series also provides plug-and-play connections to personal computers via a USB interface, allowing users to easily adjust detection efficiency and tune gate width and delay. Though it comes with its own Graphical User Interface, end-users are free to develop their own with LabView or C++.
