Photek image intensifier used in research for Time Correlated Single Photon Counting in Life Sciences

A Photek image intensifier has been used with a fast P47 phosphor and a high frame rate CCD, in research for Time Correlated Single Photon Counting (TCSPC) in Life Sciences.

The paper "Wide-field time-correlated single-photon counting (TCSPC) lifetime microscopy with microsecond time resolution" is now available to access here.
