Understanding A Camera’s Resolution

The resolution of an image sensor describes the total number of pixels that can be used to detect an image. From the standpoint of the image sensor, it is sufficient to count the number and describe it usually as the product of the horizontal number of pixels times the vertical number of pixels, which gives the total number of pixels.

Understanding A Camera's Dynamic Range

Since many camera manufacturers define dynamic range from a different point of view, a distinction should be made between the “dynamic range of an sCMOS, CMOS, or CCD image sensor,” “dynamic range of an analog-to-digital-conversion,” “usable dynamic range,” and “maximum dynamic range or SNR.” 

The Relationship Between Pixel Size And Sensitivity

This article looks to debunk the myth that “large pixel image sensors are always more sensitive than small pixel sensors.” It describes, in detail, the relationship between an image sensor’s pixel size and its sensitivity, and how each defines the quality of an image.

Fluorescence (Luminescence) Lifetime Imaging — Explained

The pco.flim camera system is the first luminescence lifetime imaging camera designed to use a two-tap CMOS image sensor. This white paper discusses the pco.flim camera and how it simplifies the process of fluorescence lifetime imaging.

Video: Photoluminescence In The Time Domain

This video shows the principle of photoluminescence in the time domain (pulsed excitation) and in the frequency domain (continuous, modulated excitation) using the pco.flim — a specialized camera for luminescence lifetime measurements in the frequency domain.
