New intensified sCMOS camera
from Andor Technology

Andor have added another model to their popular and successful iStar ICCD camera series.

The new model is based on the Zyla-5.5 sCMOS camera and comprises a fully integrated image intensifier with ultrafast gating.

The intensified sCMOS cameras features

  • 5.5 million pixels resolution
  • 40 images per second at full resolution
  • Wide range of image intensifiers for UV, VIS and NIR
  • Gate widths down to 2 ns
  • Gate repetition rates up to 500 kHz
  • Dual image mode
  • Fiber optic coupling of image intensifier and sCMOS sensor
  • Thermoelectric cooling
  • 12 bit and 16 bit digitization
  • USB 3.0 interface
  • Intuitive control with Andor’s software Solis
  • Integration in user applications with software development kits for Windows, LabVIEW, MATLAB and Linux

The new sCMOS iStar is particularly suited for sophisticated, time-resolved imaging applications. In combination with a Shamrock spectrograph it can be used for fast spectroscopic applications, especially for spatially resolved spectroscopy (hyperspectral imaging).

Typical applications

  • Laser-induced fluorescence (LIF)
  • Time-resolved photoluminescence
  • Plasma and combustion processes
  • Particle image velocimetry (PIV)
