Paper Abstract

We present a novel time-resolved photon counting imaging technique and its use in multi-dimensional luminescence spectroscopy. By using an ultrafast camera coupled to an image intensifier on a microscope, we demonstrate the potential of wide-field time-correlated single photon counting, with a count rate of up to 5 Mhz. This system has the advantage of allowing the detection of single photons in parallel in every pixel. We measured the luminescence decay of Europium Polyoxometalate (POM), and observed contrast on lifetime images of Eu-POM on silver nanocrystals.
