Silicon Photomultiplier: Everything You Need to Know

Silicon photomultiplier (SiPM) technology improves timing and sensitivity of applications that involve photon detection. These sensors are useful for detecting light wavelengths in the near-ultraviolet to near-infrared range. As a solid-state device solution with no moving parts, SiPM is more efficient than heavier photomultiplier tubes when it comes to sensing, quantifying, and timing various levels of light.

Gaining Clarity on Terms Related to Gain of a Bipolar Junction Transistor

A bipolar junction transistor (BJT) is a semiconductor device that can be used as an electrical switch or a switch to amplify a signal. It’s important to measure its beta, which is the gain or amplification factor of a transistor. Beta reflects the proportionality between the base current and the collector current of a BJT set at the forward active mode. Here are some essential terms related to BJT betas and why they create confusion.
