Exosens Adds Innovative Photon Counting System, LINCam, to Its Portfolio of Single Photon Sensitive Detectors

by Ohio Digital News

Exosens is pleased to announce a partnership with Photonscore, a provider of instrumentation for time-correlated single photon imaging. Through this partnership, Exosens will distribute LINCam, an innovative camera system with picosecond time resolution through their Photonis-branded scientific imaging product portfolio.

“We are delighted to partner with Photonscore and add LINCam to our scientific imaging solutions to our potential customers. LINCam is a breakthrough technology that enables fast and accurate time-resolved imaging for a variety of applications, such as biomedical research, material science, and quantum optics. LINCam complements our existing product line and combined will provide a unique value proposition.” – Ulrich Laupper, President and Executive General Manager of the Exosens Ultimate Detection Business Unit.

LINCam is an easy-to-use, event-based camera that counts photons at high rate with the picosecond time resolution combined with accurate position information. Paired with a pulsed light source, LINCam can turn any conventional microscope into a powerful lifetime imager.

The partnership between Exosens and Photonscore is supported by Photonis, a brand of Exosens, which provides a crucial component of the camera: the high-time resolution position-sensitive MCP-PMT detector. Photonis has optimized the MCP-PMT which allows for the best properties for LINCam performance by providing high quantum efficiency and low dark rate photocathodes in a broad spectral range and also by implementing high linearity and high gain MCPs to increase the dynamic operational range. As a result of Exosens and Photonscore’s close technical collaboration, the state-of-the-art high-time resolution single-photon camera LINCam becomes the optimal solution for widefield microscopy and other highly demanding applications. 

“At Photonscore we are excited to start a productive partnership with Exosens. Their knowledge and experience in the field of photon detection gave us a big leap in the quality and capability of our system. In particular, the outstanding technology of Hi-QE photocathodes and high-performance MCPs enables us to bring LINCam to the applications where we did not dare enter into before.” – Yury Prokazov, CEO, Photonscore GmbH
