TCSPC / FLIM / Time Tagger

TCSPC Devices for Ultra-High Time Resolution Single-Photon Counting

More than 25 Years of Experience in TCSPC – as technology originator and leader Becker & Hickl offers TCSPC solutions with unprecedented time resolution. The SPC modules can be used for classic and multidimensional fluorescence decay applications as well as for fluorescence lifetime Imaging (FLIM), multi-wavelength FLIM, simultaneous fluorescence- and phosphorescence lifetime imaging (FLIM/PLIM), fast time-series FLIM, fluorescence correlation spectroscopy (FCS), single-molecule experiments, anti-bunching experiments (HBT) and many other multi-dimensional photon recording tasks.

On Request

(1) For all modules of the SPC series: up to 4 or 8 PMTs are connected using routers HRT-41 or HRT-81; for up to 8 SPADs (TTL) use HRT-82. 16 channel detection is provided by the PML-16 detector series.
(2) A single instance of SPCM software operates up to four modules. Multiple instances of SPCM can be launched to operate more than four modules or modules of different types.
(3) Using SPCM DLL with custom programming up to 32 modules can be operated in parallel.
(4) Number of detectors depend on the operation mode. 16 SPADs (TTL) can be used in the simple photon counting mode. See DPC-230 for details. FLIM operation is possible with a single detector.
(5) Hanbury-Brown-Twiss setup. Start-stop histogram between two detectors.
