BELFAST, Northern Ireland, Feb. 3, 2010 – Andor Technology plc has announced the launch of its iXonEM Blue EMCCD (electron-multiplying CCD) camera. The single-photon-sensitive low-light imaging camera is based on a blue-enhanced variant of a 512 × 512-pixel-resolution back-illuminated EMCCD sensor and is engineered to deliver up to greater than 20% additional sensitivity to blue wavelength photons.

The detector offers enhanced quantum efficiency performance between 300 and 470 nm, -100 °C thermoelectric cooling, a frame rate of 35 fps at full resolution, low clock-induced charge noise, RealGain calibration of electron-multiplying gain control and advanced quantitative stability. The rapid vertical shift capability provides speed advantages when operated with binning/subarray, while minimizing vertical smear.

The proprietary and patented EMCAL user-initiated routine performs automatic recalibration of the electron-multiplying gain scale without the need for a light source or factory recalibration.

Pixel size is 16 × 16 µm, image area is 8.2 × 8.2 mm, and maximum readout rate is 10 MHz. The detector offers “fast kinetics” and “cropped sensor” acquisition modes, a choice of a blue optimized antireflection-coated window or an uncoated quartz flat window, and a built-in C-mount-compatible shutter.

Applications include ultracold ion imaging, luminescence detection and calcium signaling.

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...
