CCD Cameras White Papers and Case Studies

  1. Using The Eagle V For Chemiluminescence Imaging
    9/12/2016

    In order to be able to detect the photons emitted by the chemical reactions in living organisms, researchers use chemiluminescence. Chemiluminescence imaging requires a camera with the highest sensitivity and the ability for long exposure times. The Raptor Photonics Eagle V camera was used in a study on the circadian rhythms in plants.

  2. Solving A Difficult Military Beam Alignment Task
    4/1/2016

    Laser systems used in the periscope of a nuclear-powered submarine providing on-board instrumentation that offers accurate pitch, yaw, and roll data. As a result of the critical nature of this information, the burden is placed on the quality of the laser beam, its size, its shape, and its intensity. 

  3. PentaVac™ Vacuum Technology: Scientific CCD Applications
    5/23/2014

    CCD imaging sensors are used extensively in high-end imaging applications, enabling acquisition of quantitative images with both high (spatial) resolution and high sensitivity. By Dr. Geoff Martin, Principal Systems Engineer, Raptor Photonics Ltd

  4. An Introduction To Digital Microscopy Imaging
    5/30/2013

    As fun as taking pictures may be, it is the professional analysis of samples that really counts. This article discusses key concepts of digital microscopy imaging systems and how these concepts contribute to a professional presentation of your work. By SPOT Imaging Solutions, a division of Diagnostic Instruments, Inc.

  5. Detecting And Defeating Subversive Night And Fog Activities
    4/8/2013

    Around-the-clock surveillance capability in any weather is a decisive operational ad-vantage for military and emergency services. In these and similar applications, SWIR cameras are well-suited for everyday use because they show good results when compared with other imaging technologies. To recognize and track objects of light-reflecting as well as self-radiating natures, SWIR cameras can be easily combined with thermal LWIR cameras and their images overlaid to enhance their content and validity.

  6. UV Measurement Of Sunglasses Using A Back-Thinned CCD Spectrometer
    1/22/2013

    In assisting thousands of customers over the years, we’ve discovered that everyone has a slightly different idea of what constitutes ultraviolet light. For some, it’s the light just beyond human vision that some animals can see (300-400 nm). For others, it’s ionizing radiation that propagates only in a vacuum, below 120 nm.  What we can all agree on, however, is that UV light is not good for our eyes, and that a proper pair of sunglasses needs to block these harmful rays.

  7. Technical Note: New-Generation CCD/EMCCD Technology: A Primer On eXcelon™ Technology
    12/16/2010
    Since their invention in 1969, charge-coupled devices (CCDs) have been used to detect the faint light from items as nearby as cells under a microscope to those as far away as stellar objects at the edge of the known universe. By Princeton Instruments Inc.

  9. Technical Note: EM-CCD
    10/27/2010
    There are three types of CCDs which are well known in scientific imaging.
  10. Technical Note: EMCCD vs. Interline CCD For Cell Microscopy Applications
    5/28/2009
    The megapixel sensor format and small pixel size of Andor’s new Luca R EMCCD camera presents a novel combination of ultra-sensitivity, resolution, field of view, and above all, flexibility. The EM gain feature of this camera offers the unique advantage to use the Luca R in light-starved conditions, in which current leading interline CCD sensors may not deliver optimal image quality.
