Mao Nakajima

Mao Nakajima headed up the team behind the hugely respected ORCA®-Quest qCMOS® Camera, which accurately measures the number of photons and performs imaging under extremely low noise conditions. 

As Nakajima explained: “Strictly speaking, measurement at the individual photon level has not been possible. With this camera, we succeeded in reducing noise to the utmost limit and accurately counting the number of photons. That is a huge difference from conventional sensors.”
