TRING, England, June 14, 2011 — The T-Cam from Specialised Imaging Ltd. is a scientific CCD camera designed to enable high-resolution imaging of transient events.
Integrating 4 k × 3 k image sensors, the camera captures images of transient events at up to 11 million pixel resolution. Operating at shutter speeds faster than 1 µs eliminates motion blur. This, together with high optical sensitivity across a 12-bit dynamic range, provides high-quality images.
Because accurate triggering is crucial to capturing transient events, the T-Cam is equipped with two sophisticated trigger inputs that accept trigger signals from almost any source. The SI sure-shot velocity triggering system is incorporated for use where appropriate. The sure-shot system takes an input from two spatially separated detectors, allowing the camera to calculate the correct exposure timing, irrespective of the subject’s velocity. Two independent customer-programmable pulse outputs are included to provide control of external lighting or other instruments.
Combining a robust, compact design with intuitive software, the point-and-shoot scientific CCD camera enables even occasional users to capture high-quality images. Typical applications include bio- and chemiluminescence imaging, gas flow imaging, photochemistry, photophysics, time-resolved spectroscopy, transient absorption, emission spectroscopy and shadowgraphy.
