PicoQuant proudly announces the inclusion of the LINCam, a photon counting camera manufactured by Photonscore, to its line up of single photon sensitive detectors. The LINCam is a single photon counting device working in the time domain that provides position data via patented procedures.

Pairing the LINCam with pulsed light sources allows turning any conventional fluorescence microscope into a powerful, scanning-free, time-resolved imaging instrument. Using it in conjunction with off-the-shelf optics makes it suitable even for larger scale applications such as Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR).

The heart of the LINCam is a position sensitive microchannel plate based detector assembly coupled to a data acquisition system with high time resolution. The camera achieves high spatial resolution equivalent to a CCD camera with 1000 × 1000 pixels. The data acquisition system records both position and time information for each detected photon in spectral ranges from 200 to 800 nm and can achieve an overall time resolution down to 50 ps (FWHM).
