  • Single photon time resolution

  • Measurements with scintillators

  • Energy resolution

  • Time resolution

  • Additional monitor output to measure timing and energy simultaneously

  • Coincidence measurements

  • Two evaluation kits can be mounted exactly facing each other

Single Photon Spectrum

Figure 1: Both PM3315-WB and PM3325-WB show an excellent single photon resolution. Measured with the SiPM Evaluation Kit at 4.0 V overvoltage.
Used components: PEVAL-KIT-MCX and PE33xx-WB-AX

KETEK SiPM WB Series - Single Photon Spectrum

KETEK SiPM EB Series - Single Photon Time Resolution of PM3350-EB

Single Photon Time Resolution

Figure 2: Extremely low time jitter of PM3350-EB for a single detected photon. Measured with the SiPM Evaluation Kit at 5.0 V overvoltage.
Used components: PEVAL-KIT and PE33xx-EB-AS

Spectroscopy

Figure 3: Example of an energy spectrum measured with PM3315-WB. The used scintillator crystal LYSO is very bright and typically SiPMs tend to respond non-linear when measuring e.g. a ²²Na source. Due to its high cell density and fast recovery time, PM3315-WB shows a perfectly linear response and both photopeaks (511 keV, 1275 keV) are correctly located on the x-axis. Measured with the SiPM Evaluation Kit at 5.0 V overvoltage.
Used components: PEVAL-KIT-MCX and PE33xx-WB-AX

KETEK SiPM WB Series - Na-22 Spectrum with PM3315-WB and LYSO

KETEK SiPM WB Series - Coincidence Time Resolution of PM3325-WB and LYSO

Coincidence Time Resolution

Figure 2: Coincidence Time Resolution (CTR) of two PM3325-WB with 3 x 3 x 20 mm³ LYSO crystals. Measured with the SiPM Evaluation Kit at 5.0 V overvoltage.
Used components: Two PEVAL-KIT-MCX and two PE33xx-WB-AX
