Introducing
The Chronos Series

[ Timepix3-based detection systems ]

Here's why our event-based and data driven detectors stand out

Unmatched Speed
Experience the unparalleled temporal resolution of 1.56 ns. To put this into perspective, in a frame-based system this translates to 600 MHz. Our pixel readout, developed in collaboration with NIKHEF, operates independently for each pixel, eliminating deadtime and yielding event-data with nanosecond granularity.
Event Rate
Capture up to a staggering 300 million hits per second; enabling state-specific large field readout of atomic lattices, quantum correlations in many single-photon interactions, large molecule imaging analysis, and observation of bright scintillators.
Noise Free
Enjoy noise-free detection at room temperature. No need for external cooling devices.
Seamless Data Integration
Worry less with our flexible API-based control software and GUI for previewing. You may script the detector operation to fully automate the data acquisition and integrate seamlessly with the whole experiment.
