These devices include photomultipliers, photodiodes, infrared detectors, image sensors, scientific cameras, and light sources. We also offer x-ray detectors and sources, as well as specialized photometric systems for semiconductor manufacturing, pharmaceutical development, nondestructive inspection, and academic research.
Hamamatsu is dedicated to the betterment of life through light-based technologies. Based on this corporate philosophy, we conduct basic research on the fundamental properties of light, while also making extensive R&D efforts in the development of new products. Our devices are used in scientific, industrial, and commercial applications around the world. We have a global network of operations.
In Japan: Global headquarters, manufacturing, and research facilities are located in Hamamatsu, Japan. Here we have four primary manufacturing divisions: Electron Tube Division (for products such as photomultiplier tubes, scintillators, light sources, and x-ray sources); Solid State Division (photodiodes, silicon photomultipliers, image sensors, infrared detectors, x-ray detectors, MEMS devices); Systems Division (scientific cameras, photometric systems); and Laser Group (laser diodes, quantum cascade lasers).
Specialties: photomultiplier tubes, silicon photomultipliers, photodiodes, photo ICs, mini-spectrometers, image sensors, scientific cameras, electron multipliers, infrared detectors, X-ray detectors, light sources (UV, X-ray), laser diodes, photometry systems.
