SPC-150NXX TCSPC FLIM Module

The SPC-150NXX single photon counting card from Becker and Hickl (B&H) is the Extreme-Resolution Version of the SPC-150N, offering the highest resolution time correlated single photon counting (TCSPC) with unsurpassed electrical timing resolution down to 3ps (FWHM) / 1.1ps (RMS).


With time channel width down to 203fs, the high timing resolution makes the SPC-150NXX ideally suited for use with ultra-fast detectors, such as B&H's new HPM-100-06/07 ultra-fast hybrid detector or superconducting single photon detectors. B&H recently demonstrated use of their SPC-150NXX in combination with an NbN superconducting nanowire single photon detector (SNSPD). The detector was developed collaboratively by MIT and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). Please see the application note for further details of this collaboration.
