Paper Abstract

The choice of detector is based on tradeoffs between a variety of requirements such as performance, size, stability, robustness and, of course, price. A large number of detectors are now available, giving the design engineer an ever-increasing number of choices. We will briefly discuss the key performance issues that arise in the selection of a biotechnology detector. This will be followed by a discussion of new high sensitivity photomultipliers, photomultiplier arrays, APDS, APD arrays and CCDs.
