IRIS SiPM detectors break the 100 ps barrier

News date: 
Monday, 27 July, 2015

Two new SiPM detector designed in FBK for PET applications now offer a significantly improved coincidence time resolution, and may help better localize tumours within patients. Improved timing has been demonstrated, with the best coincidence time resolution seen for the 2 × 2 × 3 mm crystals of only 85 ps – an experimental record.

Results are described in a paper published in Physics in Medicine and Biology.
