EINDHOVEN, Netherlands, Dec. 10, 2007 -- Dalsa Corp.'s Professional Imaging group has introduced a High Quanta line of sensors tailored for scientific, life sciences, and astronomy applications.

According to Dalsa, these sensors are large format area sensors that provide a new benchmark in imaging performance. Using advanced fabrication techniques to realize smaller CCD transistor structures, the sensors achieve improvements in noise performance and quantum efficiency (QE), peaking at more than 75 percent. The new sensors also employ the latest designs in output amplifiers providing exceptionally low noise at high data rates.
Dalsa's 4-MP large format IA-DJ-02084 CCD provides improved quantum efficiency for scientific and medical imaging.
The High Quanta sensor line is ideal for low-light imaging, the company said. "In applications that are light-starved, having a sensor that utilizes every available photon and maintains signal integrity through low noise readout is essential," said Behnam Rashidian, product manager, Dalsa Life Sciences. "The ability to achieve such high performance in a large front-illuminated area sensor makes the High Quanta family a cost-effective solution."

The High Quanta line currently includes three sensors with resolutions of 2084 x 2084, 1044 x 1044 and 524 x 524 and feature a 24-µm-sized pixel. For those applications demanding ultraviolet (UV) sensitivity and >90 percent QE, backside-thinned (BST) devices will be available on a custom basis.

The High Quanta sensors, which were showcased last month at the Radiological Society of North America show in Chicago, are now available, Dalsa said.

The scientific observation of celestial radiation that has reached the vicinity of Earth, and the interpretation of these observations to determine the characteristics of the extraterrestrial bodies and phenomena that have emitted the radiation.
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
An electronic device consisting of a semiconductor material, generally germanium or silicon, and used for rectification, amplification and switching. Its mode of operation utilizes transmission across the junction of the donor electrons and holes.
