AUREA Technology offers the "best in class" single photon counting modules

Near Infrared Single Photon Counting OEM Module


AUREA Technology provides, the SPD_OEM_NIR, the first continuous and gated modes near-infrared Single Photon Counting module, based on its Geiger-mode InGaAs avalanche photodiode SPAD and its new enhanced embedded electronics.

This is the most compact and fastest high-performance Near-Infrared [900 nm-1700 nm] Single Photon Detection module for asynchronous (free-running) and synchronous (gated) photon detection applications.

Very well-designed, the SPD_OEM_NIR is self-contained. It doesn't require any additional cooling systems or control units. Thus, its compactness and modern interfaces make it very easy to integrate in the most demanding analytical optical instruments, quantum optics systems, and quality control processes.  Two grades are available:

  • The standard SPD_OEM_NIR performs free-running and gated modes with very-low-noise DCR <5.000 cps and high Photon Detection Efficiency up to 25%, and up to 20 MHz trigger rate,
  • The champion SPD_OEM_NIR performs free-running and gated modes with ultra-low-noise DCR <1.000 cps and high Photon Detection Efficiency up to 30%, and up to 100 MHz trigger rate with very fast timing resolution < 150 psec.

Moreover, the SPD_OEM_NIR provides a Personal Computer connection via its mini-USB and Bluetooth interfaces. Its easy-to-use Graphical User Interface allows the user to adjust the Photon Detection Efficiency and the Dead Time.

DLL libraries compatible to the most well-known programming languages, such as LabVIEW, C++, and Visual Basic are also provided.

This newly designed SPD_OEM single photon counter allows scientists and engineers to develop the most sensitive and compact optical instruments, such as required in quantum cryptography, quantum optics, spectro-photometers, spectrometer, lidar, ranging, photo-luminescence, fluorescence life time microscopes, photon source characterization, fiber optics characterization, and failure analysis.
