Available from Stanford Photonics Inc., the XR/Mega-10Z photocathode intensified CCD (ICCD) camera platform for low-light imaging and detection combines quantum efficiency of typically 40% to 50% and the low intrinsic dark current characteristics of GaAsP intensifier technology with Peltier cooling to provide virtually zero dark current/dark counts for video rate sampling. Typically, there are one to two counts per frame at 30 fps. Cooling enables extended on-chip integration for exposures of up to 60 s. The dual-microchannel plate provides light gains of up to 2 million and reduces ion feedback noise relative to single-stage image intensifiers. A general-purpose and a high-speed model are offered.
