Dino Butron is a Senior Applications Engineer at Hamamatsu Corporation in Bridgewater, NJ where his focus is on high sensitivity photodetectors for use in various markets. He is currently involved in leading discussions for detector selection and developing simulation tools.
Dino is an expert in the operating principles and application of various detectors such as photodiodes, avalanche photodiodes (APD), SPPC (SPAD), MPPC (SiPM), and photomultiplier tubes (PMT). He has worked on many photodetector experiments resulting in a deep understanding of detector performance. In addition, he has vast knowledge programming signal-to-noise ratio and output simulations. He received his Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering from Manhattan College, Riverdale, NY, in 2012.
I'll be showing how Julia and it's libraries can be used to simulate non-linearity in photon counting detectors used in LiDAR
