Hamamatsu Photonics continue to develop products that meet industries high demands for innovation and reliability. Hamamatsu produce a wide a range of photomultiplier tubes (PMTs) designed to be used in extreme environments, where a normal PMT would not survive the intense heat and vibrations.
The new 25mm diameter R1288AH PMT employs a high temperature resistant bialkali photocathode that features excellent stability and long operation life. Operation up to 200oC is easily achieved and the PMT is supplied with a temporary base or in an assembly.
With peak sensitivity in the blue region, 300 nm to 500 nm, coupling to a NaI (Ti) scintillator is easy and well suited for MWD (Measurement Whilst Drilling) applications in particular, where temperature and vibrations are a real hazard. Beneficial too, is the high gain, typically 105 and low dark current.
Hamamatsu’s range of ruggedized PMTs makes the perfect solution for any application that requires high reliability and durability. In particular, with the increasing demand for natural resources such as oil and gas, and the mounting difficulty in locating new reserves, Hamamatsu Photonics can offer you a chance to search in ever more demanding locations.
Hamamatsu also introduces the new L12336 ultra-compact xenon flash lamp module, for use in compact analytical instruments in environmental, industrial and medical measurement applications.
The L12336 is the world’s smallest 2W xenon flash lamp module, measuring only 42mm x 42mm x 38mm, affording end users great design freedom. It features a built-in trigger socket, offers battery-powered operation and delivers a long lamp lifetime of 1.0 x 10? flashes, in addition to highly stable operation (0.5% CV) and a maximum repetition rate of 1250 Hz.
These features make it an ideal solution for portable instrumentation including UV-VIS spectroscopy, environmental monitoring and point-of-care testing.
