Paper Abstract

We plan to build a photon counting camera able to yield photo-event coordinates (x,y, and t) at maximum rates superior to a million per second with a high temporal resolution (2.6 μs) and a 512 X 592 field. Ground-based interferometric techniques (single or multi-aperture) require detectors providing short frames, to deal with atmospheric turbulence. In order to reach the high signal-to-noise ratios required for imaging capabilities with aperture synthesis, such photon counting detectors are required.
