The ColorRAD is Thermo Fisher Scientific's latest addition to its Cidtec radiation-hardened product lines. The CID (charge injection device)-based camera provides sharp, crisp video images in radiation environments with color imaging up to 3 x 10(6) rads total dose.
The ColorRAD line complements the MegaRAD series of monochrome radiation-hardened cameras, which operate to at least 1 x 10(6) rads total dose.
ColorRAD features include excellent signal-to-noise in high-radiation flux rates, antiblooming performance inherent to CIDs and wide spectral response.
The cameras operate in total radiation dose exposure over 100 times greater than what conventional CCD cameras can tolerate. This radiation hardness makes the ColorRAD and the MegaRAD series well suited for nuclear medicine, reactor surveillance, vessel inspection, waste monitoring, accelerator experiments, hot cells, safety (ALARA) programs and other imaging applications common to the nuclear power generation, decommissioning, waste disposal, and high-energy physics markets.
