MSA-300 Multiscaler for Photon Counting

MSA-300 5ns Multiscaler

The MSA-300 from Becker and Hickl is a 5ns multiscaler for photon counting with direct data acquisition (1 channel) including operating software for Windows.

Using a 128 bit memory structure, the MSA-300 achieves dead time free accumulation of subsequent sweeps. This makes it exceptionally useful for a wide variety of high repetition rate signal recording applications. For example, time-of-flight measurements where packages of ions are released by a pulsed source, sent through a drift tube and detected by a microchannel plate (MCP) rely on high acquisition rate apparatus.

Due to the high accumulation rate of the MSA-300 very high repetition rates and short overall measurement times are possible.
