Nanosecond Timestamping for Single-Photon-Counting Images

The Mantis3 is a single-photon-counting camera with nanosecond timestamping. The Mantis³ consists of a Timepix3-based visible light camera coupled to a Photonis CricketTM, which contains a high-end image intensifier. The TPX3Cam (produced by Amsterdam Scientific Instruments) is a high-rate, event-driven, timestamping camera. The attached CricketTM image intensifier enables single-photon sensitivity and offers a choice of … Continue reading
