Feature Article in Photonics Spectra on SPAD technology

PI Imaging Technology and PicoQuant write on value and impact of Single-Photon Avalanche Diodes in applications

In a feature article in the May issue of Photonics Spectra, Ivan Michel Antolović from Pi Imaging Technology and Rainer Erdmann, Managing Director at PicoQuant write about on how the developments in SPAD technology revolutionize confocal microscopy and other fields that require improved spatial and temporal resolution from photon-counting detectors. SPAD arrays represent an exciting opportunity for confocal microscopes because they potentially improve all crucial performance parameters, including SNR, acquisition speed, the threshold for excitation intensities, and spatial and timing resolution — all with very little to no increase in system complexity.

PicoQuant upgrades its multichannel event timers with flexible and powerful hardware event filters

A recent, free gateware and software update enables higher throughput and smaller data sizes for demanding applications

With the release of a free gateware and software update, PicoQuant adds a powerful, new feature to the MultiHarp 160 and 150P event timers: multifunctional on-board event filters. These user-definable filters are hardware-based and enable the filtering of events in real time. This feature is particularly aimed at demanding application scenarios that make use of information spread across several channels, such as coincidence counting in quantum sciences.
