Updated EMCCD Brochure Available from Princeton Instruments

Sep 2010
TRENTON, N.J., Sept. 13, 2010 — Princeton Instruments announced the release of an updated 48-page ProEM EMCCD camera brochure—a high performance EMCCD camera platform available to the scientific imaging market.

The latest brochure includes enhancements to the ProEM line, including availability of the company’s proprietary eXcelon back-illuminated sensors that provide improvements in sensitivity and fringe suppression. They are suitable for a host of applications, including Bose Einstein Condensate (BEC), solar astronomy, multispectral imaging and plasma diagnostics.

Also included in the newest version is the ProEM 512BK, which has an exclusive on-chip mask for ultrafast kinetics. In addition, the EMCCD allows illumination of exactly two rows and delivers burst frame rates in excess of 1 million fps. Its external blades provide a “variable kinetic mask” for increased sensitivity, the company said.

The cameras are compatible with its new 64-bit LightField acquisition software, a user interface to control ProEM cameras and to streamline experimental setup, data acquisition and post processing.

The new version is available for download at: www.princetoninstruments.com/bro_pdf_req.aspx 

In addition to EMCCD cameras, Princeton Instruments designs and manufactures high-performance CCD and ICCD cameras, spectrographs, and optics-based solutions for scientific research, industrial imaging and OEM applications.

GLOSSARY
astronomy
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.
multispectral imaging
Multispectral Imaging: Creation of an image where each pixel contains more than three spectral data points, typically four to 20. This is contrasted with a standard color camera that only captures three spectral data points (called RGB), or hyperspectral cameras, which capture hundreds of spectral data points. Traditional multispectral cameras captured four data points: RGB and an NIR band. Nowadays multispectral cameras are available as commercial off-the-shelf products, with 12 custom bands...
sensor
1. A generic term for detector. 2. A complete optical/mechanical/electronic system that contains some form of radiation detector.
spectrograph
An optical instrument for forming the spectrum of a light source and recording it on a film. The dispersing medium may be a prism or a diffraction grating. A concave grating requires no other means to form a sharp image of the slit on the film, but a plane grating or a prism requires auxiliary lenses or concave mirrors to act as image-forming means in addition to the dispersing element. Refracting prisms can be used only in parallel light, so a collimating lens is required before the prism and...
