We developed a measurement system that enables the reconstruction of γ-ray time spectra in cascade decay schemes with 0.3 ns time resolution, which is sufficient for nuclear decay with more than nanoseconds half-life. As this system records all the time and energy information of γ-rays, the energy regions for the γ-ray identification can be optimized after the measurement. Moreover, this system has five timing inputs and thus we can record the timing data of external perturbations; we can investigate the responses to the perturbation afterward. This property fulfills the demands required for quantum information research with γ-rays.
