Large-Format CCD Cameras
TRENTON, N.J., Aug. 5, 2009 – Princeton Instruments has unveiled its Pixis: 1300 series CCD cameras, adding three configurations to the Pixis line: front illuminated, back illuminated, and back illuminated deep depletion. The cameras are based on proprietary 1340 × 1300-format sensors with a large 26.8 × 26.0-mm imaging area, and they offer deep cooling to better than -70 °C, with guaranteed vacuum for life of the camera.

With ultralow-noise electronics and large 20-µm pixels that afford better light collection efficiency, the cameras achieve true 16-bit performance. Features include dual 100-kHz/2-MHz digitizers, multiple gains, multiple output amplifiers, ultralow read noise of 2 e- rms, all metal hermetic seals, an easy-to-use USB 2.0 interface and a single optical window design for high optical throughput.PI-Pixis1300.jpg

The cameras also offer flexible binning and region of interest capabilities, and they are supported by WinView software. For integration into complex experiments, a toolkit with LabView examples and the proprietary PVCAM software development kit are available.

The compact PIXIS: 1300B back-illuminated CCD camera is optimized for large-format astronomical imaging and chemiluminescence applications. With water-only cooling, it has no internal fan. The available CoolCube liquid circulator allows researchers to capture crisp images by removing heat from the camera. For operation from remote control rooms, the camera may be equipped with an optional fiber optic data interface.

The back-illuminated, deep-depletion version offers high near-IR sensitivity while virtually eliminating etaloning. With low dark current and read noise, the camera can detect the ultralow light levels typical in chemiluminescence and bioluminescence applications. The large imaging area is suitable for high-throughput screening.

GLOSSARY
binning
Combining adjacent pixels into one larger pixel, resulting in increased sensitivity and lower resolution, or, in image analysis, excluding objects based on shape, position or area.
photonics
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
