Solid state NIR detectors (NIR DSS) are an attractive alternative to NIR photomultipliers. In fact, they can be considered superior in many respects, as they offer much higher upper wavelength limits, are much less prone to damage when exposed to light, are not limited by dark counts when used for long lifetimes, and are considerably less expensive than NIR photomultipliers.
This technical note serves as a guideline to selecting the best solid state detector with the Fluorolog-QM™ modular research spectrofluorometer for a given series of photoluminescence experiments.
