Paper Abstract

An experimental setup of photon counting real-time image acquisition system is introduced, wherein a photon image head (an image intensifier with high radiant emittance gain) is coupled with a high frame rate CCD camera by a super powerful relay lens. The restrictions on luminous emittance of object are analyzed for multiphoton and single photon imaging modes. The methods of determining readout noise are introduced. The application examples of system in adaptive optics wavefront sensor operated with a faint object, and in experimental study on the optical wave-particle duality and the uncertainty relation are presented.
