Paper Abstract

Adaptive Optics Associates, Inc. (AOA) has recently constructed a new commercial low-light imaging detector which we call the P4oton Digitizing Camera (PDC). Based on the PAPA detector developed at Harvard Universityl", the PDC generates (x,y,t) coordinate data of each detected photo-event. .Because the positional address computation is performed opti-cally, very high counting rates are achieved even at full spatial resolution. Careful optomechanical and electronic design results in a compact, rugged detector with superb per-formance. The PDC will be used for speckle imaging of astronomical sources and other astro-nomical and low-light applications.
