MultiHarp 150 – new generation of timing electronics

Record-breaking multi-channel event timer for quantum optical applications

As the world market leader in TCSPC timing electronics, PicoQuant is proud to announce the MultiHarp 150, its newest generation of bench-top event timers with USB 3.0 interface. Its outstanding data throughput allows to fully exploit the count rate limits of time-resolved single photon experiments. With 4 or 8 detector channels and a common sync input, the MultiHarp 150 is ideally suited for photon coincidence measurements in quantum optics. It is world's first commercial event timer on the market, which is prepared to be used in a White Rabbit timing network. This feature allows two modules to be synchronized over ranges as high as tens of kilometers, making it the ideal time tagger for long distance quantum entanglement experiments.

Taiko PDL M1 – Your Rhythm. Our Light.

PicoQuant’s first smart picosecond laser driver offers unmatched operational flexibility for even the most demanding application

Take full control over your pulsed picosecond light sources with PicoQuant recently released Taiko PDL M1 smart laser driver. This laser driver is tailor-made for the most demanding applications in life and material science, semiconductor diagnostic as well as laser-ranging. The Taiko PDL M1 is able to monitor and control most laser head parameters such as optical output power or laser head temperature. It offers unmatched operational flexibility, including a wide range of repetition rates, burst patterns, continuous wave operation, and external triggering. Featuring both an intuitive local one button control scheme and a versatile remote user interface, operating a laser has never been more easy and enjoyable. The two interfaces are fully synchronized and can be used simultaneously.

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.

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.
