Development of a WLS + SiPM system for UVC light detection.


  • Viktor STEKHANOV

Primary authors


The first studies of VUV detection by the SiPM have shown that it is necessary to use a WLS. Some manufacturers produce native VUV sensitive SiPMs at present. Collaborations Gerda, MEG, NEXT, nEXO plan to use these SiPMs in their detectors. The PDE of these SiPMs is lower than green or blue sensitive SiPMs. In our previous studies, it was obtained in the WLS + SiPM system about 50% of the sensitivity of the SiPM. We started to develop a WLS + SiPM system for use it in the nEXO prototype. In this study, we used the SiPMs developed at the MEPhI (MEPhI-KETEK) and Sensel and nanostructured organosilicon luminophores (NOL) as the WLS from the ISPM RAS.
