Photonics West 2018 in San Francisco

PicoQuant attends the world's largest photonics technologies event

From January 27 to February 1, PicoQuant showcases at the Photonics West in San Francisco its latest innovations in picosecond pulsed diode lasers, in single photon counting, as well as in microscopy and spectroscopy applications. The highlights at this exhibition include the high power pulsed laser „VisIR/VisUV“ platform with the new wavelengths 266, 280, 295, 532, 560 and 590 nm as well as the new Quantum Correlation Analysis Software „QuCoa“.

Season’s greetings from PicoQuant

We wish you and your relatives a joyous and peaceful holiday season and happy new year

Since the satisfaction of our customers is the foundation of our success, it is with great pleasure that we can say “thank you” during this holiday season for your pleasant and trustful cooperation throughout this year. We wish you and your relatives a merry holiday time and the best of health, happiness, and success for 2018.

Commitment and social responsibility are two core values of PicoQuant, which lead us to financially support several foundations and charities throughout the year, including Unicef, the Jose Carreras and the Rainforest Foundations.

Our ongoing success as a premiere developer and manufacturer of high-end time-resolved systems, TCSPC electronics, and laser components would not have been possible without our team of outstanding co-workers. We’d like to take the time to thank them for the excellent work, dedication, and inspired ideas.

Following tradition, our Christmas Elves have been hard at work ordering, packing and wrapping gifts for the youngest members of the PicoQuant family. The resulting colorful pile of presents will fulfill many a child’s wish during this holiday season.

Season’s greetings from PicoQuant

The FluoTime 300 spectrometer now available with double monochromators in excitation and emission

The new option strongly improves sensitivity and temporal resolution

PicoQuant proudly announces that the FluoTime 300 fluorescence lifetime spectrometer is now available with double monochromators in excitation and emission. Due to the very high stray light rejection of these monochromators, the signal to noise ratio of the spectrometer is increased to more than 29.000:1 (RMS) using the standard water Raman test. Even samples with a very high scattering contribution can now be studied with extreme sensitivity and ultimate temporal resolution.

BE-OPTICAL and PicoQuant – pushing the envelope in medical imaging

Project focuses on achieving the next major advance in medical imaging, enabling advanced analysis of cells or tissues

PicoQuant and the Humboldt University Berlin are co-hosting an Early Stage Researcher (ESR) within the framework of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions of the Innovative Training Networks H2020 BE-OPTICAL. The ESR is working on a PhD thesis during his stay at PicoQuant that is entitled "Advanced Nanoscale Microscopy: Time-Resolved Super-Resolution Fluorescence Studies of Biological Structures". The aim of the project lies in exploring novel strategies based on pulsed excitation coupled with nanosecond time-resolved detection to carry out multiplexed studies of complex dynamics in biological structures under optical super-resolution conditions.
