Photek Ltd, announces the availability of the AuraTek PCS, a next-generation single photon counting system. The AuraTek PCS is designed to significantly reduce measurement time for scientists and engineers in a wide range of photon counting applications by providing highly parallel, fully independent readout. In fluorescence lifetime imaging applications users currently must decide between excellent… Continue reading AuraTek-PCS demonstrating Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging
Advancement in Detector Physics relies on enhancing detector technology to improve the spatial resolution, temporal resolution, and data analysis software routines. This unique collaboration with Photek and the University of Leicester, funded by the Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851, aims to develop a new generation single photon imaging detector. This novel detector with… Continue reading New generation single photon imaging detector from Photek
Here at Photek we were recently recommended for continued certification after completing our ISO 14001:2015 recertification audit. This recertification recognises Photek’s determination to manage our environmental impact and shows a constant commitment to environmental planning and improvement. The audit determined the effectiveness of our environmental management system ensuring that it meets all applicable statutory, regulatory,… Continue reading Why environmental quality management is important to Photek?

Come hear our colleague Amelia Markfort present at IEEE NSS MIC 21st October Investigating machine learning solutions for high-speed data analysis and imaging of a single photon counting detector with picosecond timing resolution Limitations in algorithmic data analysis techniques for image processing of photon detection devices are becoming increasingly apparent. Use of high… Continue reading Single photon counting detector with picosecond timing resolution
An Aug. 8 experiment at National Ignition Facility (NIF) at LLNL made a significant step toward ignition, achieving a yield of more than 1.3 megajoules (MJ). This advancement puts researchers at the threshold of fusion ignition, an important goal of NIF, and opens access to a new experimental regime.
