abstract

  • The streak camera is a picosecond resolution photodetector with parallel input capability; however, the degree of multiplexing is limited by crosstalk and temporal uncertainty in the sweeping field. We introduced a fixed time delay between adjacent fibers to reduce crosstalk in the synchroscan mode. The fixed delay and a tunable electronic delay between the input pulse and the synchroscan unit allows robust separation modes between the streaks, while spatial and temporal nonlinearities can be calibrated in. The efficacy of the design is demonstrated through a 100-fold multiplexed confocal fluorescence lifetime imaging microscope in live cells.
