The aim of this research is to explore the potential advantages of SPAD imagers used in microscopy. An ideal microscopy detector requires high sensitivity (high quantum efficiency QE or photon detection probability PDP), photon counting operation, low noise (dark current or dark count rate), timing resolution in the order of 100 ps, frame rate higher than 10 fps, a large enough pixel resolution and wavelength resolvability.
