Low-noise CCD detectors

iDus and iVac series from Andor Technology
The iDus and iVac CCD detectors are designed with the lowest noise and highest quantum efficiencies to provide very sensitive and high dynamic range detectors for use in a wide range of both conventional and demanding spectroscopic applications. While die iDus CCD detectors can be cooled to -100°C, the iVac CCD models achieve very  fast spectral rates. The iDus and iVac series offer a variety of different sensor formats in order to optimize the detector for your specific application.Features
  • Front and back illuminated CCDs with anti-reflection coatings optimized for different wavelengths
  • Pixel sizes 15 µm, 16 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 iDus and iVac are compact, yet feature-rich CCD detector series. They are suitable for demanding spectroscopy applications such as low-light photoluminescence or Raman spectroscopy as well as day-to-day routine laboratory operation and integration into industry-grade systems. The low-noise electronics offers excellent signal-to-noise ratios for a wide range of photon detection regimes. While the iDus series boast market-leading deep thermos-electric cooling to -100 °C for negligible dark current, the iVac CCD detectors offer much higher spectral acquisition rates due to their faster AD converter. Both series are complemented by Andor’s UltraVac technology for sustained vacuum integrity of the sensor. The popular ‘Low Dark Current Deep Depletion’ CCD sensor is available in the iDus 416 and the iVac 316 models. All iDus and iVac CCD detectors are compatible with the Shamrock spectrographs from Andor and with many 3rd party spectrographs.
