Photon counting camera LINCam now available from PicoQuant

The LINCam from Photonscore is now a part of PicoQuant’s detector line-up with single photon sensitivity

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).

23. International Workshop on Single Molecule Spectroscopy and Super-resolution Microscopy in the Life Sciences

Researchers from all over the world met in Berlin from September 13 – 15, 2017

Over 90 researchers from various scientific fields such as Life Sciences, Physics, Biology, and Chemistry met at this three day event to report on and share the latest developments in ultrasensitive optical detection. A special highlight of this year excellent line-up of invited speakers was the presentation given by Nobel laureate W. E. Moerner (Standford University, USA) on “the promise and challenges of 3D super-resolution microscopy and single-molecule tracking in cells and in solution”.

QuCoa - new software for the analysis of quantum correlations

Simplify data acquisition and analysis for quantum correlation and coincidence counting applications

PicoQuant has released the QuCoa software package, an integrated solution for data acquisition and analysis using the unique T2 time-tagging mode of PicoQuant's TCSPC electronics. QuCoa is aimed at research areas relying on coincidence detection such as Hanbury-Brown-Twiss setups to study single photon sources (g(2) / antibunching), quantum key distributions (QKD), general quantum optics or the study of entanglement using Hong-Ou Mandel setups (HOM). The software offers special analysis routines for coincidence correlations as well as for coincidence counting applications.

SymPhoTime 64 – new software version released

Novel reconvolution fitting models for rapidFLIM measurements involving multi exponential lifetime decays

PicoQuant is releasing a new version of the SymPhoTime 64 fluorescence imaging and correlation software package for the time-resolved MicroTime 200 microscopy platform. Beyond regular fixes and improvements, this update includes a special highlight for rapidFLIM users. Novel reconvolution fitting models (patent pending) are now included for correcting detector pulse pile up occurring in fluorescence lifetime imaging (FLIM) experiments performed at high count rates. These new models extend accurate fitting and analysis of rapidFLIM data to cases where multi exponential lifetime decays are involved.
