Sensors and detectors


Coherent has developed two new laser pulse energy sensors to measure very high energy/peak power lasers operating at low repetition rates.

Series 200EP

PerkinElmer has introduced the Series 200EP PDA, a new photo diode array detector that features high linearity and spectral integrity, allowing excellent qualitative and quantitative analysis of complex mixtures.

Pyroelectric detectors

Spectrum Detector introduced several pyroelectric detectors and instruments for use in the THz spectral range (30&microm to 3 mm).


The SPMScint from SensL is a solid-state detector that is sensitive to single photons. It is a low-cost device that consists of an array of geiger mode avalanche photodiodes (APDs).


Horiba Jobin Yvon has introduced three new ranges of multichannel detectors: the Symphony arrays with LN2 cooling, the Synapse arrays with thermoelectrical cooling, and the Sygnature ambient temperature linear detectors.

XLIN 1.7/2.2/2.5 Series

XenICs has introduced the XLIN 1.7/2.2/2.5 series of InGaAs linear photodiode arrays, featuring high detectivity, linearity and uniformity, with good stability and a wide dynamic range.


Hamamatsu Photonics introduce the new multi-pixel photon counter (MPPC), the S10362-11 series. The device features brand new technology utilising a Geiger-mode avalanche photodiode structure for ultra-low-level light detection.


The LightProbes, from Peak Test Services, are designed to test lamps and displays on printed-circuit boards using in-circuit test fixtures and automatic test equipment (ATE).

PCS-Control Box

Silicann Technologies has released a new control unit for the PCS series of colour sensors. The stand-alone unit allows parameters to be controlled in an easy-to-understand interface similar to standard PC software.

UL 03 16 2

ULIS launches its new, portable IR detector, UL 03 16 2, which is well adapted for civilian low-cost applications like predictive maintenance and thermography.
