Hamamatsu’s S11500-1007 and S11510 series are back-thinned CCDs with improved NIR sensitivity, and they are ideal as detectors in Raman Spectroscopy. Our unique technology in laser processing was used to form a MEMS structure on the back side of the CCD. This improved the CCD’s sensitivity in the NIR region, which is particularly beneficial for detecting long-wavelength Raman emissions.

These CCDs feature 40% quantum efficiency at 1000 nm, and have a wide spectral response range from 200 nm to 1100 nm.
In addition, the CCD can be operated as a linear image sensor by binning pixels. The binning operation ensures even higher signal-to-noise ratio and faster signal processing speed compared to methods that use an external circuit to add signals digitally.
