Positron Receives Two Patents for Quantum Photodectors

Positron Corporation, Indianapolis, Ind., a molecular imaging company, has announced it has received two US patents for its proprietary quantum photodetectors.
The quantum detector is capable of counting single photons – the basic quantum units of light. A replacement to photomultiplier tubes, the quantum detector has potential industry-wide applications in medical imaging, especially in Positron emission tomography (PET), as well as possible broader implications in other key sectors such as homeland security and nuclear physics.
