    Open-Source Photon Counting Advances Biological Research

    Article obtained from BioPhotonics RSS Feed.

    A surgeon removing a malignant tumor1, a security agent detecting harmful molecules at a stadium2, an autonomous car avoiding a collision3, a weather satellite spotting hurricane formations4, a neuroscientist tracking neuronal activity deep within the brain5 — all of these situations involve quickly identifying small optical signals buried within a large noisy volume. Efforts made by many to achieve this difficult goal have led to a “convergent evolution” toward a common solution: time-tagged photon counting using sensitive single-pixel photodetectors. Consequently, free and open-source software recently developed for neuroscientific research may find its way to assisting clinicians and researchers in otherwise unrelated…
