No more scanning: time-resolved measurements with an array of single-photon detectors.
FLIM and FRET imaging traditionally use scanning systems to form an image of the sample under test. With the PF32, however, an image is formed without the need for scanning thanks to the 32 x 32 array of SPAD detectors in the sensor. The following video is an excerpt from S. Poland’s paper, although this took advantage of scanning the array for a further increase in speed and resolution.
The left shows intensity, the middle is lifetime, and the right is a combination of both.
