Abstract

We present an efficient fluorescence detector in the visible region of the spectrum with a photon detection dynamic range over 106 photons/s made of a temperature-stabilized Si-based multi-pixel photon counter at temperature down to 5 oC. We show that effective cooling of the device by means of a compact thermo-electric cooler brings several advantages, such as high gain, low dark noise rate, and thus high signal-to-noise ratio in the efficient fluorescence detection at 398.9 nm from the 1 S 01 P 1 transition of the ytterbium atoms in an effusive atomic beam. We present also a comparison of the fluorescence detection efficiencies between the device and a side-on photo-multiplier tube with known gain positioned at the symmetric location from the ytterbium atomic beam.

(Color online). Effective signal amplitudes per unit detector area Veff measured by the MPPC module and the PM tube without average versus frequency detuning for various operating parameters (see text). Each fluorescence peak corresponds to the Yb isotopes and for the fermionic isotopes the quantum number F due to the hyperfine structure are shown in parenthesis.

(Color online). Bias voltage dependence of the effective signal amplitude VMPPC eff of the MPPC corresponding to the 174Yb isotope for different values of operation temperature between 25 °C and 5 °C in a 5 °C step. Error bars include the statistical standard deviation and atom number fluctuation due to oven temperature stability. For comparison, the PM tube signal VPM eff at the gain of 1×105 is also shown.
