TRENTON, N.J., Sept. 17, 2012 — Launched by Princeton Instruments, the PI-MAX4 series of intensified CCD (ICCD) cameras are for time-resolved scientific imaging and spectroscopy applications. The fiber optically coupled cameras afford users comprehensive control of experiments via proprietary 64-bit LightField data acquisition software.

Available in 1024 × 1024- and 1024 × 256-pixel formats, both use ultrafast electronics to achieve <500-ps gating. The performance is achieved using traditional Gen II and Gen III intensifiers, as opposed to tubes with a metal grid underlayer that compromises sensitivity and spatial resolution. Both formats include a precision timing generator with 10-ps resolution, deliver good system linearity and use a high-bandwidth GigE data interface. Fully programmable trigger inputs and outputs eliminate the need for an external timing generator.

The 1024i model achieves 27 fps at full 1k × 1k resolution, which is further increased with region of interest and binning. It has a double image feature to quickly capture two full-resolution images with <450-ns intraframe time for applications such as particle imaging velocimetry.

Applications include fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy, time-resolved imaging and spectroscopy, plasma diagnostics, combustion research and planar laser-induced fluorescence.

The software provides an oscilloscopelike visual interface for setting up complex gating sequences with ease, streamlined experimental setup, data acquisition and postprocessing functions.
