For time-resolved imaging applications, Andor Technology plc has launched an addition to its iStar range of scientific-grade intensified CCDs. The iStar 312T imaging platform operates at acquisition rates of >15 fps, rendering it suited to combustion analysis and plasma studies. Crop mode and fast kinetic mode enable acquisition rates in excess of 5500 spectra per second, continuous, and 55,500 Hz, burst, respectively. Features include a —40 °C thermoelectric cooling interface, low-noise electronics and high-quantum-efficiency photocathodes for high sensitivity, ultraprecise timing control via low-jitter electronics and a comprehensive software control interface, and gating of better than 2 ns. The integrated digital delay generator delivers ultralow insertion delay and timing accuracy down to a few tens of picoseconds, allowing synchronization of complex experiments through a range of input/output triggering options.
