Princeton Instruments has unveiled its eXcelon deep-depletion CCDs and cameras for low-light, near-infrared imaging and spectroscopy. Improvements over standard deep-depletion technology include reduced etaloning and higher quantum efficiency across a broader wavelength range, from 200 to 1100 nm. The new CCDs, with pixel resolutions of 1340 x 100, 1340 x 400, 1024 x 1024 and 1340 x 1300, are available in the company’s Pixis and Spec-10 deep-cooled, low-noise camera platforms. The sensors deliver peak quantum efficiency of >95% and as much as a 45% increase over a broader UV-NIR wavelength range. They are suitable for use in live-cell imaging, confocal imaging, total internal reflection fluorescence, Förster resonance energy transfer and superresolution techniques, including stochastic optical reconstruction microscopy and photoactivated localization microscopy.

GLOSSARY
Bose-Einstein condensate
A group of atoms that have been cooled to the point that they have minimum motion and share the same, lowest possible quantum state.
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...
etaloning
A phenomenon that degrades the performance of thinned, back-illuminated CCDs. The effect is caused by lightwaves passing through the CCD and reflected at the rear surface, producing interference fringes when they interact with incoming waves.
