Challenges in modern physics experiments and medical imaging call for continuous boosting of various specifications of detector instrumentation. While spatial and timing resolution, power consumption and data-rate reduction are among parameters, which require constant improvements, new signal analysis and feature extraction methods have to be developed in parallel to aid the performance enhancement.
To support the improvement of both parameters and methods, we are currently working on various electronics concepts spanning from development of readout electronic systems for analog silicon photomultipliers (SiPM) to various integrated circuit like new ADC designs, time-to-digital-converters and intelligent data analysis units. While former allows for further exploitation of conventional SiPMs, the latter, if integrated in an avalanche-photodiode based image sensor, can dramatically improve overall timing resolution and other key detector parameters.
In addition to improvements in the time-domain, we also work on optimization of power consumption, signal-to-noise ratio, develop new parameter extraction methods from digitized pixel data, and investigate electronics scaling options. In this presentation, we would like to discuss our recent developments in the field of detector design, with the focus on receiver electronics for SiPMs and APD based image sensors.
