High-performance CCD detectors

Newton series from Andor Technology

The Newton series of CCD detectors is designed with the lowest noise and highest quantum efficiencies to provide highly sensitive and high dynamic range detectors for use in a wide range of spectroscopic applications.

In addition, the MHz AD converter provides very fast spectral acquisition. Multi-track and high speed spectroscopy are possible by special sensor read out modes.

Features
  • Front and back illuminated CCDs with anti-reflection coatings optimized for different wavelengths
  • Pixel sizes 13.5 µm and 26 µm
  • Thermo-electric cooling to -100 °C for negligible dark current
  • High quality 16 bit AD converter for low readout noise
  • USB 2.0 interface

Further information

The Newton CCD detectors are optimized for demanding spectroscopic applications and offer low read noise, negligible dark current and very high quantum efficiencies. High performance AD converters complemented by thermo-electric cooling to -100 °C provide the best signal-to-noise performance for the widest range of photon detection regimes. Optical etaloning in the NIR is minimized by a special technology that comes as standard for deep-depletion sensors.

The Newton 920 series offers sensors with 26 µm pixels optimized for high dynamic range while the Newton 940 detectors have 13.5 µm pixels for the highest spectral resolution possible from UV to NIR. All Newton CCD detectors are compatible with the Shamrock spectrographs from Andor and with many 3rd party spectrographs.
