Datasheet: High Sensitivity CCD Camera: iKon-M 912

Source: Andor Technology PLC

The highly sensitive iKon-M DU-912N is designed to offer the ultimate in back-illuminated, low noise performance, ideal for demanding imaging applications. The 512 x 512 CCD array with 24µm pixels has been optimized for the best resolution and dynamic range. It boasts 95% QEmax and exceptionally low readout noise. The highly sensitive iKon-M camera benefits from negligible darkcurrent with industry-leading thermoelectric cooling down to -100°C, enabling use of significantly longer exposure times than offered by any other camera on the market using this same sensor. The iKon-M platform offers Multi-Megahertz readout for more rapid acquisition or fast focusing, along with direct USB 2.0 connectivity to PC.
