Welcome to SCONTEL's Web-page!
SCONTEL was founded in 2004 and all these years we design, fabricate and sell unique devices based on thin film superconducting nanostructures:
Single photon detectors of visible and infrared wavelengths with picosecond response time, high quantum efficiency and extra low dark counts (SSPD);
Fast and sensitive THz receivers for far and mid - infrared wave range (THz region).
Upgrade is available for any of your SSPD or THz system. We have been always hard working to expand the range of products with higher & better specs.
Possible range of System's specifications:
System Detection Efficiency: ≥ 85 %
Timing jitter: ≤ 45 ps (25 ps on request)
Dark counts rate: ≤ 10 cps (0.1 cps on request)
Spectral range: 0.5 ÷ 2.5 µm
Fiber coupling (no misalignment)
Operation in a continuous mode
