Sensitive Cameras

sensicam uv

This UV sensitive cooled digital 12bit camera system comprises advanced CCD and elctronics technology. With this on-chip multiplication of the light signal the readout noise of the camera can be neglected (< 1 e- rms @ gain > 50). With its excellent resolution of 1004x1002pixel this high performance cooled digital 12 bit CCD camera system is best suited for extremely low light camera applications. The system features thermo-electrical cooling of the image sensor down to -12C and an outstanding quantum efficiency in the UV range of the spectrum (QE 15% @254nm and 10% @193nm). Exposure time modes (software selectable) range from 75 s - 1h. A high speed serial data link connects the system to the PC (fiber optic link available). This low light UV camera system is perfectly suited for scientific imaging (e.g. metrology, semiconductor quality control, nano particle measurements and bio label imaging) applications.
