RULLI/a Photon Counting Imager

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The Remote Low Light Imaging (RULLI) system responds to individual photons using a modification to conventional image intensifier technology and fast timing electronics. Each photon received at the detector is resolved in three dimensions (X, Y, and time). The accumulation of photons over time allows the system to image with very low light levels, such as starlight illumination. Using a low power pulsed laser and very fine time discrimination, three dimensional imaging has been accomplished with a vertical resolution of five cm.
