Prototype Solid State Photomultiplier Based Intra-Operative Beta Camera


We have developed a working prototype of a beta camera based on solid state photomultipliers (SSPMs), to demonstrate proof of concept. The SSPM, essentially an array of avalanche photodiodes operating in Geiger mode, produces a gain equal to or better than that of a photomultiplier tube, while operating at low bias voltage. The beta camera consists of a… (More)
