A HyD is a sensor for detecting light (photons). It is a compound (hybrid) of two technologies: vacuum tubes, like those used in a photomultiplier tube (PMT), and semiconductor microelectronics, like an avalanche photodiode (APD). The Hybrid Detector combines essentially the advantages of both approaches. It is fast, shows very little noise, and offers a high dynamic range. For a comparison see references 1, 2, 3, and 4. The HyD is the best suited sensor for most confocal and multiphoton applications. https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/what-is-a-hybrid-detector-hyd/ Wed, 06 Mar 2019 23:00:00 +0000 Dr. Rolf T.

By confocal microscopy, we mean "True Confocal Scanning", i.e. the technique that illuminates and measures one single point only. The aim is not to impart in-depth specialist knowledge, but to give the user a small but clear overview of the differences between the various technologies and to advise on which sensor may be most suitable for which applications. https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/from-light-to-mind-sensors-and-measuring-techniques-in-confocal-microscopy/ Fri, 28 Aug 2015 16:25:00 +0000 Dr. Rolf T. Borlinghaus https://www.leica-microsystems.com/7988 Confocal Microscopy Super-Resolution Gates Open for Improved Confocal Fluorescence and Super-Resolution STED True confocal microscope systems feature single-point illumination and single-point detection. The method is called "optical sectioning" since the generated image contains only information from the focal plane. The serial detection offers highly efficient and low-noise sensors for signal conversion. Although the nonparallel detection is not conducive to high-speed imaging, modern scanning concepts allow frame rates above 400 frames per second at reasonable noise levels. This is by far enough for most applications, including the monitoring of fast ion-transport phenomena in living material. https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/gates-open-for-improved-confocal-fluorescence-and-super-resolution-sted/ Wed, 23 Jan 2013 23:00:00 +0000 Dr. Rolf T.
