Abstract

We report a novel wide-field imaging method capable of time-correlated single photon counting. It is based on a photon counting image intensifier coupled to an ultra-fast CMOS camera running at 40 kHz frame rate. Using a pulsed excitation source and decaying luminescent sample, the arrival times of hundreds of photons can be determined simultaneously in many pixels with microsecond resolution and reduced photon pile-up. The detection system is mounted on an inverted microscope and applied to time-resolved imaging of Europium-containing polyoxometalate nanoparticles.

Typical characteristics of the image intensifier performance, obtained by imaging a flat field at 30 kHz frame rate and 256×256 pixels. (a) Single photons on 30 μs exposure time frame. (b) The photon events have different intensities as illustrated by a photon event pulse height distribution. (c) A flat field, the sum of all frames. (d) A photon arrival time plot shows a mean of 174 photons detected per frame. (e) Photon arrival time plot with a logarithmic time axis over five orders of magnitude. (f) Distribution of the number of photons per frame, and the corresponding Poissonian fit.

Using a pulsed laser, the arrival times of photons after an excitation pulse can be determined with microsecond resolution in all pixels in parallel. (a) A Eu-POM lifetime image and lifetime histogram. The scalebar is 100 μm. (b) A decay of Europium-containing polyoxometalate (POM) nanoparticles [28] after 256 excitation pulses averaged over the whole field of view. (c) Distribution of photons detected after a single laser excitation pulse, showing up to 5 detected photons on a single pixel in an image. (d) Semi-logarithmic bar graph of the overall distribution of all detected photons in (c).
