8 channel SPAD Module

8 channel SPAD Module

8 channel SPAD module from Becker & Hickl containing eight actively quenched SPAD pixels on a single silicon chip, enabling simultaneous measurement in all 8 channels.

The signals of the SPADs are recorded by a single bh TCSPC module. The module uses Becker & Hickl's multi-dimensional TCSPC technique and for each photon, the SPAD-8 delivers a timing pulse and the number of the SPAD pixel which detected the photon. The TCSPC module then builds up a photon distribution versus time and pixel number, or stores the individual events as time-tag data.

Power supply, SPAD excess-voltage control, an current for the TE cooler are provided by a bh DCC-100 detector controller card.


  • Instrument response width 70 ps FWHM
  • Max. count rate greater than 5 MHz
  • 1 x 8 arrangement of detector channels
  • Interfaces directly to all bh TCSPC systems



This product could be used for the following applications:

  • Fluorescence lifetime imaging (FLIM)
  • Fluorescence correlation spectroscopy
  • Fluorescence lifetimes


This product is manufactured by Becker and Hickl GmbH.
