  1. Introducing The pco.edge bi For Microscopy Applications
    2/7/2019

    Dr. Scott Metzler from PCO introduces the pco.edge 4.2 bi back illuminated camera sensor with high resolution and a 6.5 x 6.5 μm² pixel size for high-quality images with quantum efficiency up to 95%. This next-generation camera offers an extremely versatile solution for all of your microscopy needs.

  2. Why You Should Use Back Illuminated sCMOS Cameras For OEM Development
    2/7/2019

    On our last day here at Photonics West 2019, Dr. Scott Metzler from PCO presents the enhanced capabilities that bi sCMOS sensors have to offer, including up to 95% quantum efficiency and a broader spectral response than previous generation. Check out the video for more information.

  3. What Is Dynamic Range, And Why Bother?
    1/31/2018

    Thomas Bauersachs with pco.tech explains what dynamic range is as it relates to a camera’s capabilities and specifications. Watch the video to better understand its importance and how it can affect your imaging application.

  4. Product Video: New Scientific Cameras For Versatile Applications
    1/31/2018

    Thomas Bauersachs with pco.tech took time out of day one of Photonics West 2018 to show us their new back-illuminated sensor-based pco.panda – an sCMOS camera featuring up to 95% quantum efficiency.

  5. Video: Photoluminescence In The Time Domain
    5/10/2017

    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. The corresponding waveforms of light, shaped and delayed by a reflective target and a photoluminescent sample, are visualized.

  6. Imaging Plasma Channels In Electron Beam Welding
    4/10/2017

    During electron beam welding, the high energy concentration causes the material to melt, which forms plasma. The escaping plasma creates a channel as it “drills” into the depth of the workpiece and forms the welded seam as it cools. The sequence shown in this video has been attained using 9,000 fps with the exposure matched to the actual welding process.

  7. A Spark In The Dark – And How To Snatch It With PCO’s High-Speed Cameras
    1/10/2017

    High-speed camera users demand cameras that work accurately under the harshest environmental conditions, making reliability and operational capability crucial considerations in scientific cameras. This video shows a combustion analysis application, using a pco.dimax high-speed camera, at the Robert Bosch GmbH in Stuttgart. 

  8. Car Safety Testing Using the pco.dimax cs Camera
    5/13/2015

    The pco.dimax cs camera with its true 12-bit performance is ideal for providing crisp, brilliant color images for all car safety testing applications involving onboard, offboard, and sled testing. This high speed video presents car safety testing situations recorded with the pco.dimax cs camera.

  9. Ladybug Takes Off In Slow Motion
    11/21/2014

    This particular sequence was recorded with at pco.dimax HD CMOS camera at 3,000 frames-per-second and 1296 x 720 pixel resolution. Once the ladybug unfolds its wings, the display speed is reduced to 25 fps.

  10. Clear, Colored Images Captured In Low Light
    11/20/2014

    This video was taken out of a lab window at dawn. The sequence displays three times at 16bit and 8bit scaling to capture details. All imagery was captured by the pco.edge – a color, sCMOS (scientific CMOS) camera operating at 2560 x 2160 resolution at 100 frames/s.
