Photo Detection Efficiency

Figure 1: Absolute Photo Detection Efficiency (PDE) of the WB Series SiPMs versus photon wavelength. The peak PDE is at 430 nm. WB Series SiPMs are sensitive over a wide range from 350 nm to 900 nm. The plot shows the values at 5.0 V overvoltage.

Dark Count Rate

Figure 2: Typical Dark Count Rate (DCR) of the WB Series SiPMs versus overvoltage. In comparison to the EB Series SiPMs the DCR greatly improved and is below 100 kHz/mm² in the recommended operating range. Measured at 21°C.

Dynamic Range

Figure 3: Linearity of PM3315-WB and PM3325-WB versus number of impinging photons. As PM3315-WB has more cells and a faster cell recovery, it has a higher dynamic range than PM3325-WB. The measurement has been done with a short laser pulse of 70 ps length.

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

Coincidence Time Resolution

Figure 4: 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

Scintillator Measurements

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
