PicoQuant GmbH will introduce the „τ-SPAD", a single photon counting module for timing applications at SPIE Photonics West and BIOS 2011 in San Francisco, California.
With „τ-SPAD" PicoQuant will showcase a detector for applications like Fluorescence Correlation Spectroscopy (FCS) and Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging (FLIM). The detector achieves an extremely high photon detection efficiency of 75 percent at 670 nm and is suitable for photon counting between 400 nm and 1000 nm. The „τ- SPAD" is the result of a partnership between Laser Components GmbH and PicoQuant GmbH, where Laser Components manufactures the highly sensitive avalanche photodiodes (APDs) and PicoQuant supplies the specifically developed quenching electronics.
PicoQuants new products and further time-resolved electro-optical instrumentation from the product portfolio will be on display at the BiOS exhibition, part of the SPIE Photonics West on January 22 to 23, 2011 at booth 8906 (south hall), and during the SPIE Photonics West exhibition on January 25 to 27 at booths 4829 (north hall) and 2523 (south hall).
