Fast Transient Phenomena

In this operational mode, data corresponding to the 60-pixels SPADA detector are acquired every integration time window (programmable in the range 100 ^s/100 ms). This allows time-tagging of incoming photons, with enough resolution for astronomical applications where fast timing is required, for example, fast events due to gamma rays burst, or sources with low luminous flux and high temporal variation, such as pulsars. Another interesting field where this kind of system can be used is the asteroseismology.
