Up to 5 MHz readout

Fast readout for multiple exposures

16-bit digitization

Provides maximum dynamic range - Read out speed can be adjusted to extend dynamic range (slow) or focusing (fast)

Back-illuminated CCD

Best response for soft x-ray

1024 x 1024 imaging array

with 13 x 13 -mm pixels

Scientific grade CCD with 100% fill factor-offering high spatial resolution


Flexible binning increases read out rate and dynamic resolution

Adjustable gains

Can adjust for low noise or high signal to noise ratio

CCD can be optimized for specific wavelengths

Allows tailor made systems to fit specific applications and experiments

Thermoelectric cooling

Can cool the CCD to –70C with simple and maintenance free TEC cooling with optional water chiller

PCI Interface with fiber optic connection

Industry standard for fast reliable data transfer - Fiber optic adds flexibility

16-bit digitization

Allows for 30,000:1 dynamic range

Thermoelectric or cryogenic with C-series

Provides deep cooling - Cryogenic options allow for long exposures (hours)

Wave Metrics “IGOR” or Digital Optics “V++” Software

Powerful analysis software that can be tailor made to meet your needs

Windows XP, Linux and Unix compatible

Increased system utility

Conflat vacuum interface

Industry standard and can be designed to fit your existing equipment
