However, this technique is limited by low counting rate and high system cost. In this paper, we report a new time-resolved optical measurement method which aims to achieve faster data acquisition without losing the key benefits of TCSPC. The new method is based on the spread spectrum time-resolved optical measurement method combined with single photon counting. A pseudo-random bit sequence is used to modulate a continuous wave laser diode, while the pulse sequence in response to the modulated excitation is recorded by a single photon detector. The impulse response is then retrieved by periodic cross-correlation. Both simulation and experimental work have been conducted to validate our approach. Experimental results with our prototype have shown a time-resolution better than 200 picoseconds. Besides the faster data acquisition and high timeresolution, the new method also affords other benefits such as portability and low cost. © 2009 SPIE.||Source Title:||Progress in Biomedical Optics and Imaging - Proceedings of SPIE||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/67244||ISBN:||9780819474162||ISSN:||16057422||DOI:||10.1117/12.807793|
