The Imaging Photon Counter available from PHOTONIS integrates a cross-strip anode giving a perfect combination of fast timing and high spatial resolution that is matchless in photon imaging. This unique combination is not available in other commercial products. The timing resolution of 50pS is superior compared to resistive anode IPCs and is several orders of magnitude faster than image intensified cameras or EMCCDs.
Each photon is time-stamped individually, facilitating event analysis that is never available before. The spatial resolution of <15 µm rms over the 18 mm active region is equal to over 1 million pixels. The Imaging Photon Counter is available with an S25 photocathode or a Blue enhanced S20 photocathode.
The features of the Imaging Photon Counter are:
- Unique combination of fast timing and high spatial resolution
- 50pS timing resolution
- Low distortion
- A cross-strip anode
- Individually time-stamped photon allows event analysis
The applications of the Imaging Photon Counter are:
- Time-resolved fluorescence imaging
- LIDAR mapping
