Title: Time stamping of single optical photons with 10 ns resolution

High spatial and temporal resolution are key features for many modern applications, e.g. mass spectrometry, probing the structure of materials via neutron scattering, studying molecular structure, etc. Fast imaging also provides the capability of coincidence detection, and the further addition of sensitivity to single optical photons with the capability of timestamping them further broadens the field of potential applications. Here, photon counting is already widely used in X-ray imaging, where the high energy of the photons makes their detection easier.
