Camere intensificate per applicazioni di Imaging e Spettroscopia risolte nel tempo

Camere intensificate Serie iStar da Andor Technology

Le camere ICCD Serie iStar di Andor Technology sono dotate di sensori CCD di grado scientifico accoppiati ad un intensificatore di immagine di alta qualità e con elettronica di controllo del fotocatodo estremamente veloce.

L’intensificatore di immagine si comporta come se fosse uno shutter ottico ultra-veloce con exposure time dell’ordine del nanosecondo. Grazie all’elevato guadagno dell’intensificatore, inoltre, le camere ICCD Andor sono in grado di rilevare facilmente segnali estremamente deboli fino al singolo fotone.

I modelli iStar 320 e 340 sono dotati di sensore rettangolare rispettivamente di 1024x255 pixels da 26 µm e 2048x512 pixels da 13.5 µm e sono impiegati principalmente in applicazioni di Spettroscopia. I modelli iStar 312 e 334 prevedono invece sensori quadrati, rispettivamente di 512x512 pixels da 24 µm e 1024x1024 pixels da 13 µm, e sono pertanto tipicamente impiegati in applicazioni di Imaging, sebbene il modello iStar 334 sia comunemente utilizzato anche in Spettroscopia.

I modelli iStar 312, iStar 334 e iStar sCMOS prevedono invece sensori quadrati, rispettivamente di 512x512 pixels da 24 µm, 1024x1024 pixels da 13 µm e 2560x2160 pixels da 6.5 µm, e sono pertanto tipicamente impiegati in applicazioni di Imaging, sebbene il modello iStar 334 sia molto spesso utilizzato anche in Spettroscopia con particolare riferimento ad applicazioni LIBS in combinazione allo spettrografo Andor Mechelle.

Caratteristiche
  • Gating con risoluzione temporale < 2 ns
  • Ampio range di selezione del fotocatodo per applicazioni UV, VIS e NIR
  • Repetition Rate del fotocatodo fino a 500 KHz
  • Digital Delay Generator (DDG) integrato e completamente controllato via software
  • Sistema di raffreddamento termoelettrico con temperatura minima raggiungibile di -40 °C (dark cur rent trascurabile)

Maggiori informazioni

Le camere ICCD Andor iStar 320 e 340 sono progettate per offrire la migliore soluzione oggi disponibile per applicazioni di Spettroscopia risolta nel tempo con scala del nanosecondo e ad alta risoluzione. L’aspect ratio 4:1 di tali sensori si adatta perfettamente all’impiego con gli spettrografi Andor Czerny-Turner Serie Shamrock ed i relativi accessori.

Il readout rate multi-MHz permette acquisizioni con spectra rate dell’ordine dei centinaia di spettri al secondo. Modalità di acquisizione speciali (Crop Mode e Fast Kinetics) sono inoltre implementate per consentire applicazioni di Spettroscopia molto rapide con spectra rate oltre i 1.000 ed i 10.000 sps, rispettivamente.

Le camere ICCD Andor iStar 312 and 334 con sensore quadrato sono progettate per offrire la migliore soluzione oggi disponibile per applicazioni di Imaging risolto nel tempo con scala del nanosecondo e ad alta risoluzione.

La iStar 334 è il modello più versatile, adatto sia ad applicazioni di Spettroscopia che di Imaging, ed è il detector impiegato con lo spettrografo Andor Mechelle con tecnologia Echelle in applicazioni di Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS).

L’ampia gamma di intensificatori di immagine di Generazione 2 e 3, con possibilità di scelta sia per la finestra in ingresso che per il tipo di fosforo, soddisfa qualsiasi requisito sul range di sensibilità, tra 120 nm e 1.100 nm, offrendo un gating time fino a < 2ns.

Tutte le camere Andor iStar sono dotate di interfaccia USB 2.0, che ne consente l’utilizzo anche con PC laptop, e di Digital Delay Generator (DDG) completamente integrato e controllato via software.

Questo consente una perfetta integrazione della camera iStar in esperimenti complessi con un’eccellente accuratezza nella sincronizzazione dei vari componenti che li costituiscono e con controllo del guadagno attraverso un'unica e semplice interfaccia interattiva.
