In-Vacuum Mechanical Shutter Systems

BERLIN, July 6, 2015 — Greateyes GmbH now offers fast in-vacuum mechanical shutter systems for vacuum-ultraviolet and extreme-ultraviolet and x-ray cameras equipped with vacuum flanges CFDN100.
The shutters protect CCD sensors from high-energy radiation. They close before sensor readout, preventing smearing effects. Depending on the size of the CCD sensor, different shutter apertures are offered with opening times ranging from 3 to 14 ms.
Shutter coil wires are connected using the camera's own vacuum feed-throughs, so there is no need for external flanges. Different blade finishes are available for use with incoherent or coherent light sources.
The company has also released new scientific camera firmware and software, and has redesigned its scientific camera portfolio with a new hexagonal body structure necessary to improve permanent vacuum sealing.
