BELFAST, Northern Ireland, July 10, 2013 — Andor Technology plc has released extended-range Dual-AR technology for its iKon-M CCD platform, offering broad and high-quantum-efficiency spectral response coverage from the UV to near-IR in one camera.
Available on the 1-megapixel iKon-M 934 CCD platform, the technology broadens the quantum efficiency range of back-illuminated, deep-depletion sensors through implementation of a dual antireflection coating process on enhanced silicon developed by sensor manufacturer e2v. The advancement delivers ~90% or greater quantum efficiency in the 400- to 850-nm range. Proprietary Fringe Suppression Technology minimizes etaloning in the near-IR region.
The technology is suitable for long-exposure broadband applications such as luminescence microscopy and astronomy, and for ultracold-matter labs that study a range of atoms and ions.
