Paper Abstract

The photonic detector is a key device for optical instrumentation and fluorescence detection, along with the associated light source and other electric devices. Research and development for photonic devices is in higher response speed, higher sensitivity, and gate/modulation capability. Here, we introduce the following photonic device recent developments: (1) High sensitive photocathode: recently developed high sensitivity photocathode for low light detection. (2) High speed response: the photonic detectors using micro-channel plate have high speed response (time resolution of 20 psec) suitable for both time correlated photon counting and phase modulation methods. (3) Compact photosensor modules: ultra compact photomultiplier tube with TO-8 type of metal package structure will be introduced. Also, newly developed photon counting module photo-sensor. (4) Gated/modulated image intensifiers and photomultiplier tubes: high speed gated/modulated image intensifier photomultiplier tubes have developed for phase modulation method and/or life time imaging microscopy. We will review the recently developed photonic devices for the items mentioned above in this paper.
