History And Development Of EMCCD Technology – What Is Gen III?

Source: Raptor Photonics Limited

The earliest versions of EMCCD (Electron Multiplying CCD) sensors offered a new dimension in imaging that eliminated read noise from an image sensor, and enabled the required combination of extreme sensitivity and fast frame rates for advanced ultra-low light applications. Raptor Photonics now offers the next generation in EMCCD with higher resolution, smaller pixels, faster speeds without overclocking, and lower voltages on the EM gain register.
