Paper Abstract

The time-correlated single photon counting spectrometer uses a peculiar splitter technique so the time spread can be dynamically and statically compensated. Design time-correlated single photon counting electronic system. Develop data collection and transfer chip based on PC, analyzer is used to measure time-resolved spectrum by opening the time windows. The system theory and design of the spectrometer are presented in detail, and the process of operation is introduced with the integration of the system. The spectrometer can measure fluorescence life-span and time resolution spectrum of different samples. Many standard samples have been measured and the data have been analyzed and contrasted. Experimental results show that the spectrometer's sensitive is single photon counting, and fluorescence life-span and time resolution is picosecond level.
