Princeton Instruments’ eXcelon deep-depletion CCDs and cameras are 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 1340 x 100-, 1340 x 400-, 1024 x 1024 and 1340 x 1300-pixel resolutions, are available in the company’s Pixis and Spec-10 deep-cooled, low-noise camera platforms. Suitable for broad UV-NIR detection and for NIR Raman spectroscopy, solar wafer/cell inspection, NIR luminescence and astronomy, the back-illuminated CCDs provide good photon-detection capabilities. The sensors deliver peak quantum efficiency of >95% and as much as a 45% increase over a broader UV-NIR wavelength range.
