Products for Research Inc.


Founded in 1963, Products for Research has devoted its energies to improving the performance of low light level detecting devices such as Photomultipliers, Vidicons, Image Intensifiers, Intensified Vidicons, Solid State Diodes and Solid State Arrays.

Enclosures operated at ambient temperature and cooled by means of thermoelectrics, compressors, dry ice and liquid nitrogen have been successfully employed in such diverse applications as undersea research, air pollution monitoring, thickness gauging of steel, astronomical observation, laser communications, high altitude airborne research and outer space programs, including Skylab. In addition, Products for Research housings and accessories are standards of excellence throughout the scientific community in laboratories engaged in research relating to the fields of physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, nuclear physics, and optics.

With more than forty years experience in mechanical design, electronics, refrigeration, cryogenics, electro optics and vacuum systems, the engineers and scientists at Products for Research frequently work closely with industry and the scientific community in the design and fabrication of customized devices.

Products for Research PMT Housings and PMT Coolers are designed to accept tubes of any manufacturer and include socket assemblies which permit interchange of these tubes when required for specific applications.

The current catalog lists the full range of standard production photomultiplier housings and photomultiplier accessories currently available. Products for Research, however, does not limit itself to these standard units but rather is limited only by the requirements and imagination of its customers.
