The Imaging Photon Camera (IPC), being shown by Photonis, combines innovative MCP-based photonic detector technologies and fast electronics. Unlike digital sensor-based cameras, the IPC has no read noise and supports fast wide-field time-correlated single photon counting (TCSPC) applications in extreme low light.

Notably, the camera features single photon counting with micrometre resolution, picosecond timing, a wide field of view (18mm), and a counting rate as high as 5MHz. The IPC can be customised at the time of order to match spectrally the MCP-based photonic detector to exact application requirements. The camera can also be equipped with a detector that uses Photonis' new Hi-QE photocathode to increase the quantum efficiency (QE) by up to 50 per cent in the UV, blue, and green spectral ranges.
