Lambert Instruments' HiCAM series cameras offer the unique combination of high-speed and sensitivity down to single photon level. These properties are achieved by using a dual stage image intensifier that is fiber-optically coupled to the CMOS sensor. Spectral sensitivity can be selected for the specific application. Use of digital cameras in combination with intensifiers and boosters allow us to create images of high-speed events, even when light is failing.
The HiCAM is available in 2 versions, the very sensitive HiCAM 500 and the ultra-fast HiCAM 5000. More information and specifications is available on the Intensified High Speed Imaging Brochure for the HiCAM and HiCATT product lines.
The dual stage (2-stage) image intensifier is specially designed for the use in high-speed cameras; photocathodes with different spectral response from the UV until the near IR are available; enhanced maximum output brightness results in an optimal signal/noise ratio at high frame rate. The dual stage (2-stage) image intensifier is coupled to the CMOS sensor by using tapered fiber optics that matches the image intensifier to the sensor format.
