Photonis presents MantisĀ³ single photon counting camera with nanosecond time-stamping. The MantisĀ³ consists of a CERN Timepix3-based visible light camera coupled to one of Photonis' high-end image intensifier tubes. The TPX3Cam is a high-rate, event-driven, time-stamping camera. The coupled image intensifier enables single photon sensitivity and offers a choice of low noise photocathodes optimized for your application.

With image intensifier tube, the 62e- noise floor of Timepix3 chip is reduced to a level allowing single-photon detection:
