Geiger-mode avalanche photodiode (GmAPD) 3D LADAR cameras

Geiger-mode avalanche photodiode (GmAPD) 3D LADAR cameras (PresseBox) (Martinsried, ) The Princeton Lightwave 32 x 32 Geiger-mode avalanche photodiode(GmAPD) camera is a turn-key system containing a single-photon imaging sensor designed for three-dimensional laser radar imaging with time-of-flight information captured at every pixel in the array.

Princeton Lightwave's Geiger-mode avalanche photodiode (GmAPD) 3D LADAR cameras are based on a focal plane array (FPA) consisting of an InP/InGaAsP GmAPD detector array flip-chip bonded to a custom CMOS readout integrated circuit (ROIC). This single-photon imaging sensor is designed for three-dimensional laser radar imaging systems with time-of-flight information captured at every pixel in the array. A GaP microlens array is attached to the GmAPD array to provide high fill factor, and the hermetically sealed FPA housing has an integrated two-stage thermoelectric cooler to maintain appropriate operating temperatures.

The GmAPD camera is supplied as a fully integrated system with a high-performance personal computer supporting a CameraLink or other industry-standard data interface, RAID 0 storage, and comprehensive GUIdriven control software.

Typical applications are 3D LADAR imaging with single photon return pulses, photon counting LIDAR, passive imaging in photon-starved environments, single photon detection and timing for quantum optics, optical tomography.

AMS Technologies and Princeton Lightwave will present their products and competencies at booth 301 in hall B1 at Laser World of Photonics from 13th to 16th May 2013.
