Collection: Dr. Sjuts Optotechnik

After the development of a suitable manufacturing process by the Dr. Sjuts Optotechnik GmbH (founded in 1987), enabling the production of these detectors in many different forms, these detectors found their first application in space research. Because of their small size and their resistance to physical shock they meet the requirements for system components for rockets, satellites and space craft. The excellent gain characteristic, long life time and extremly low dark count rate combined with very small mechanical tolerances are the reasons for their operation in many space missions in which the solar-terrestrial relations, planetary magnetic fields, the composition of the Martian surface or cometary and planetary atmospheres were investigated.
