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.
