BELFAST, Northern Ireland, July 5, 2011 — Andor Technology plc has launched the DH320T, the latest addition to its iStar range of scientific-grade intensified CCDs for spectroscopy applications.
It offers high sensitivity, −40 °C thermoelectric cooling, high-quantum-efficiency photocathodes, high spectral acquisition rates of up to 38,000 Hz and precise timing control through low-jitter electronics. It also provides a comprehensive software control interface and fast gating of <2 ns.
The fully integrated digital delay generator delivers low insertion delay and good timing accuracy down to a few tens of picoseconds, allowing precise synchronization of complex experiments through a range of input/output triggering options. Solis software provides an intuitive interface to accurately set all delays, gating and CCD parameters and offers a real-time control graphical user interface for on-the-fly acquisition and timing optimization.
The system enables better study of fast transient phenomena. Combined with the proprietary prealigned and precalibrated Czerny-Turner Shamrock spectrograph range, the iStar 320T provides a detection and analysis tool for plasma study, laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS), transient absorption spectroscopy and fluorescence lifetime study.
