Fast timing discriminators enable the counting of narrow pulses at very high counting rates, and/or precisely marking the arrival time of these same pulses. They are designed to achieve the best time resolution and the highest counting rates by operating on the fast-rising detector signal.
A range of single-channel and multi-channel fast timing discriminators is available from ORTEC, employing both leading edge timing and the more advanced, ORTEC invented constant-fraction timing.
