Project description

English EN

New cameras filming single photons at picoseconds

Imaging technology has advanced rapidly over the last few years. However, new scientific fields require extremely fast cameras that can record data at the resolution of a single photon. The EU-funded gammaCam project aims to develop a novel CMOS camera capable of filming individual photons. The CMOS sensor comprises an array of 32x32 pixels and is based on the work of a predecessor project. Within 200 picoseconds, it can record when the photon arrives at the detector, thus creating a stunning resolution. Superfast single-photon cameras can underpin many innovations in fields such as molecular biology and medicine.
