Excelitas Technologies® (Waltham, MA) has introduced SPCM-NIR, a Single Photon Counting Module specifically selected and performance-optimized for the near-infrared (NIR) wavelength spectrum. This NIR-spectrum enhanced device is designed to support long-range LIDAR, quantum communication and microscopy applications. The Excelitas SPCM-NIR uses a specially selected silicon avalanche photodiode (SLiK) with peak single photon detection efficiency (PDE) at 780nm, typically better than 73%, while maintaining uniformity over a 180 μm diameter active area.
