Photon Counting Cameras


Sydor Technologies is the exclusive sales and applications partner for Photek products in North America, and Sydor integrates and packages utilizing Photek and other systems to provide unique capabilities for the most demanding laboratory and space applications around the world. Sydor and Photek have supplied components and integrated systems for visible, neutron, gamma, and X-ray energies to solve ToF, direct imaging, scintillated imaging, pulse dilated imaging, multi-anode imaging and more. Our packaging configurations span lab bench, vacuum to rad hard installations.

3d_hrpcsPhotek and Sydor photon-counting components and systems are unique solutions with the fastest rise/fall times, excellent spatial resolutions with unique protective packaging designs. These systems are ideal for extremely low photon emission applications such as bio-luminescence, chemi-luminescence and weak fluorescence. We add spatial resolution capabilities via multi-anode or CCD/CMOS back ends. The ability to accurately analyze transient events is a key feature of these products. Long time integration allows the user to fully capture real-time events. X, Y and time co-ordinates for photon counting post-acquisition analysis is also recorded.
