New PicoHarp 330: 4 channels. 4 more flexibility.

Unique flexibility broadens the scope of potential experiments

The PicoHarp 330 TCSPC and time tagging unit is now equipped with up to four detection channels and a dedicated sync channel with advanced channel configuration. The sync channel can be used as an additional detection channel if no synchronization signal is needed.

This enhancement not only broadens the scope of potential experiments but also significantly optimizes the efficiency of data collection in complex setups.

Key features include:

  • Enhanced Channel Configuration: The 4+1 channels allow researchers to conduct more complex and diverse experiments. This is especially beneficial in quantum optics experiments like Quantum Key Distribution (QKD), Quantum Entanglement and Bell Test Experiments.
  • Unmatched Low Jitter: Offering down to 2 ps RMS jitter, essential for accurate timing in QKD and photon correlation techniques.
  • Independet yet Synchronized Channels: Each channel operates independently but can synchronize with the others through a common sync channel, providing flexibility in experimental setups. If synchronization is not required, the sync input can serve as an additional detection channel, ideal for coincidence correlation or counting experiments with up to five channels.

Explore how the new PicoHarp 330 can transform your research with its cutting-edge technology designed to meet the demanding requirements of modern scientific exploration.
