Photek is the world-leading manufacturer of MCP photomultiplier tubes for analysis of ultrafast optical phenomena in a range of applications including, LIDAR, nuclear physics and time-correlated photon counting. Photek manufactures 10, 25 and 40 mm photomultipliers for use in the UV, visible and NIR spectrum. Photek’s photomultipliers are the fastest in the world with pulse rise times to 60 ps and pulse FWHM to 100 ps. For applications where gating is required, the Photek photomultipliers can provide gated speeds to 2 ns.
