  • SENSE: A comparison of photon detection efficiency and optical crosstalk of various SiPM devices (News) 2017-11-24

    The first scientific paper written in the scope of SENSE is now published. It shows a comparison of photon detection efficiency and optical crosstalk of various SiPM devices measured at different test setups. This was a collaborative work of Geneva University, Catania Observatory and Nagoya University and was presented at the NDIP this summer.

  • LIGHT-17 (News) 2017-10-23

    Last week the 9th LIGHT workshop took place at Ringberg Castle (right). In the wonderful surroundings of a sunny autumnal Tegernsee region we had lively discussions on the latest photosensor developments. Participants from both, science and industry, shared their previous progress and their ideas for future developments. On Wednesday we presented the SENSE project on top of Mount Wendelstein. Beside a short presentation on the project's management and the results from the SiPM measurements we...
