The Wavelength Shifting Optical Module
Large-area low-noise photon sensors with single-photon detection capability play a vital role for many detectors in astroparticle physics, such as neutrino telescopes. In conventional photo-multipliers scintillation light from radioactive decays typically dominates over the thermionic noise, both of which increase with the size of the photosensitive area. Using wavelength-shifting and light-guiding technologies, the Wavelength-shifting Optical Module (WOM) vastly increases the photo-sensitivedoi:10.5281/zenodo.1301032 fatcat:4fcryg7cobdxja4kk4jcuhz67q
