The PhotonMax:512B from PI/Acton features a 512 x 512-pixel, back-illuminated EMCCD for delivering >90-percent quantum efficiency and negligible read noise at faster-than-video frame rates.

The PhotonMax:512B also comes with a durable vacuum guaranteed for the lifetime of the camera and is independently optimized for both traditional CCD and “on-chip multiplication gain” operation. This unique camera design achieves single photon sensitivity as a result of the camera's back-illuminated EMCCD, which provides an on-chip multiplication gain (including the >90-percent quantum efficiency) that effectively reduces read noise to well below 1 e- rms.

The company said said the PhotonMAX:512B is the only EMCCD camera in the world that provides guaranteed vacuum performance, maintaining temperature and low dark current throughout its lifetime.

PI/Acton vacuum technology features 100 percent UHV-grade components in a stainless-steel vacuum chamber with all-metal seals. Equipped with the renowned CCD cooling technology from PI/Acton, PhotonMax offers the lowest dark current available and achieves deep cooling down to -80 °C using only air.
