Lightspin Technologies, Inc.
LightSpin Technologies, Inc. is a small Research & Development company focused on commercializing high performance compound semiconductor components. LightSpin's Photomultiplier Chip™ provides an affordable, fast, large area, solid-state detector solution with single-photon sensitivity and wide dynamic range. The low noise and high speed make it an ideal replacement for the 100-year-old vacuum photomultiplier tube (PMT) in a wide range of commercial applications, including scientific instruments, biomedical instruments, positron emission tomography (PET), and remote sensing applications. The Photomultiplier Chip™ can directly address the majority of the $0.5 billion PMT market, enabling improved performance, cost, size, and reliability. LightSpin is focused is on applications in high radiation environments and positron emission tomography (PET) medical imaging where the technology has an advantage over PMT's and silicon devices (Silicon Photomultipliers or SIPMs).
