Data Acquisition Software

BERLIN, Dec. 26, 2013 — PicoQuant GmbH has released 3.0 data-acquisition software for its PicoHarp 300 time-correlated single-photon-counting (TCSPC) system.
The software provides a programmable time offset in the sync input to replace adjustable cable delays (4-ps resolution, ±100 ns) and a programmable time offset in all PHR 800 router channels to tune for relative delay (4-ps resolution, ±8 ns). It also provides a future-proof file format and export of histograms directly to ASCII files as well as improvements in usage and user interface.
A programmable marker hold-off time suppresses glitches on the control signals, and software-controlled constant fraction discriminators (CFD) in all input channels ensure optimized timing for a wide range of detectors. The software is provided free to owners of a PicoHarp 300.
