The PF32 from Photon Force is the only time-resolved photon-counting camera on the market with in-pixel timing electronics.  This enables the time-tagging of incoming photons with an accuracy of 55ps.  The applications that have already benefited from the PF32’s high throughput can be found here; why not add yours to the list?  

There are 2 main PF32 variants, they both share the specifications listed below.  The differences are in the readout speeds as detailed here.

  • 32×32 Time Correlated Single Photon Counting (TCSPC) pixel array.
    • Fully digital photon counting and timestamping (no analogue readout noise).
    • Wavelength response available on request.
    • In-pixel dual mode electronics:
      • 55 ps resolution 10-bit Time to Digital Converter (TDC) time-stamping (1,023 time bins).
      • 7-bit photon counting.
    • Pipelined operation: simultaneous data acquisition and readout (no inter-frame dead time).
  • Instrument response function ~ 200 ps.
  • Programmable region of interest (permits higher frame rate for subset of pixels).
  • Flexible readout via USB3 (permits higher frame rate for reduced number of counter/TDC bits) please see here for different modes and associated readout rates.
  • External laser synchronisation input to provide TDC stop signal.
  • Laser synchronisation output (for laser as slave operation).
  • Single 5V power supply (included).
  • Precision-machined aluminium enclosure with CS-Mount for lenses.
