Team

Dr. Shubin, one of Dephan’s founders, began to develop the idea of an avalanche photodetector with negative feedback in the 1970s at the research laboratory of the P.N. Lebedev Physical Institute of the USSR Academy of Sciences. This device became the basis of solid-state photomultipliers and their version – the SiPM photodetector of the 1990s. Later, the idea of a new type of photomultiplier with high dynamic range (High amplifier channel Density, HD-SiPM) came to our founders, and in 2016 the Dephan team was supplemented by talented young engineers to create a company with the goal to commercialize the idea and take on the HD photomultiplier market.

Now the Dephan team consists of more than 20 higly skilled spesialists persones with necessary competencies in the field of semiconductor technology, photodetectors design and applications as well as business and market development.
