Photonis Advanced Performance Detectors (APDs) satisfy applications ranging from mass spectrometry to UV and X-ray astronomy. Most of these detector assemblies are designed for use in ultra-high vacuum systems and the 300°C temperatures reached during chamber cleaning, therefore saving time that would otherwise be required to remove the detector.

At the core of every Advanced Performance Detector (APD) are Photonis' LongLife™ or MountingPad™ Microchannel Plates (MCPs), which provide the highest level of sensitivity available to the market. Custom APDs can feature MCPs from 4 to 120mm plates, in a wide range of shapes, sizes or geometries.
