The TPX3CAM is a fast optical camera for time stamping of optical photons. It is based on a new silicon pixel sensor. In combination with the Timepix3 ASIC and readout it is suitable for a wide range of applications which require time-resolved imaging of electrons, ions, neutrons or single photons. The camera can be easily integrated both in table-top lab setups, as in synchrotron or free-electron-laser environments.
Image below: TPX3CAM can simultaneously image and time-stamp light flashes of more than 1000 photons with high quantum efficiency in the 400 to 1000 nm wavelength range. It can efficiently register ions impinging on an MCP (micro-channel plate) in the VMI (velocity map imaging) configuration. The MCP is coupled to a fast P47 phosphor, which produces light flashes in response to ions hitting the MCPs. The TPX3CAM, placed outside of the vacuum, can detect light flashes from the phosphor.
