Photonis holds a number of patents for our innovative approach to improving ion transport. Our Resistive Glass products preferentially attract charged particles, allowing them to be used as reflectron lenses, collision cells, capillary inlet tubes, drift cells or ion guides.
The amplification of charged particles in research can provide a larger sample size in order to better validate the results of testing or experiments. Photonis provides single channel electron multipliers, microchannel plates, and a wide range of MCP-based photon detectors.
LIDAR is used as a method for measuring the distance to a target using pulsed laser light and measuring these pulses with a sensor. These sensors must have a very fast response and small pulse width in order to be as efficient as possible.
A linear accelerator is a device that accelerates charged particles in a straight line by hitting them with successive impulses from series of electric fields. Linear accelerators will accelerate charged particles to incredibly high speed.
Vacuum tube technologies provide reliable, long-lasting and steady RF frequency generation that can be used in research and defence applications. Photonis offers proven products capable of RF generation across a range of frequencies.
