The AuraTek MAPMT253 is a next generation Multi-Anode Micro-Channel Plate Photo-Multiplier Tube (MCP-PMT).
It can be configured as a multi-channel single photon counter or analog photon pulse analyzer. The 4096 individual anodes are arranged in a 64 x 64 pattern with 0.88 mm pitch, resulting in a 53 mm square active area. The overall tube is 59 mm square, enabling efficient tiling of multiple MAPMT253s to cover large areas. Connection of the high density anode output is made using Photek’s proprietary interconnect process based on an Anisotropic Conductive Film (ACF). The timing performance is state-of-the-art, with pulse rise-time of <175 ps and single photon transit time spread of < 40 ps rms per channel.
