Updated EMCCD Brochure Available from Princeton Instruments

Sep 2010
TRENTON, N.J., Sept. 13, 2010 — Princeton Instruments announced the release of an updated 48-page ProEM EMCCD camera brochure—a high performance EMCCD camera platform available to the scientific imaging market.

The latest brochure includes enhancements to the ProEM line, including availability of the company’s proprietary eXcelon back-illuminated sensors that provide improvements in sensitivity and fringe suppression. They are suitable for a host of applications, including Bose Einstein Condensate (BEC), solar astronomy, multispectral imaging and plasma diagnostics.

Also included in the newest version is the ProEM 512BK, which has an exclusive on-chip mask for ultrafast kinetics. In addition, the EMCCD allows illumination of exactly two rows and delivers burst frame rates in excess of 1 million fps. Its external blades provide a “variable kinetic mask” for increased sensitivity, the company said.

The cameras are compatible with its new 64-bit LightField acquisition software, a user interface to control ProEM cameras and to streamline experimental setup, data acquisition and post processing.

The new version is available for download at: www.princetoninstruments.com/bro_pdf_req.aspx 

In addition to EMCCD cameras, Princeton Instruments designs and manufactures high-performance CCD and ICCD cameras, spectrographs, and optics-based solutions for scientific research, industrial imaging and OEM applications.

GLOSSARY
camera
A light-tight box that receives light from an object or scene and focuses it to form an image on a light-sensitive material or a detector. The camera generally contains a lens of variable aperture and a shutter of variable speed to precisely control the exposure. In an electronic imaging system, the camera does not use chemical means to store the image, but takes advantage of the sensitivity of various detectors to different bands of the electromagnetic spectrum. These sensors are transducers...
sensor
1. A generic term for detector. 2. A complete optical/mechanical/electronic system that contains some form of radiation detector.
spectrograph
An optical instrument for forming the spectrum of a light source and recording it on a film. The dispersing medium may be a prism or a diffraction grating. A concave grating requires no other means to form a sharp image of the slit on the film, but a plane grating or a prism requires auxiliary lenses or concave mirrors to act as image-forming means in addition to the dispersing element. Refracting prisms can be used only in parallel light, so a collimating lens is required before the prism and...
