Demystifying Time-Resolved Camera Technologies | Part 1 - EMCCDs and iCCDS for High Time Resolution

Electron multiplying CCD (EMCCD) and intensified CCD / sCMOS (iCCD / isCMOS) cameras are capable of high temporal resolution optical measurements with single-photon sensitivity. They are tremendously useful for studying combustion, plasma evolution and quantum optics among other applications. Getting the most from these cameras requires a detailed understanding how they work.

Join us for a 4-part tutorial on time-resolved detector technologies, comparing the capabilities of different sensor and camera technologies, and a step-by-step tour through how they make measurements, their strengths and limitations. We will break down some example applications, and provide a venue for discussion of experimental challenges with our applications staff. Focus will be on the Andor iXon and iStar cameras, but the concepts will be generally applicable.
