iStar sCMOS Demo Exercises: External Triggering And Troubleshooting


The ns time scale measurement capability of the iStar intensified cameras allows for increasingly complex and novel measurements synchronized with a lab full of other instruments. This video is made to introduce beginners to the requirements of externally triggering instruments in ns time scale experiments and to gradually build to quite advanced ways of using iStar cameras for faster data acquisition with higher SNR.

Learning Objectives

  • Provide guided demonstrations that users can follow-along in their lab.
  • Introduce the synchronization of instruments with TTL pulses.
  • Learn different modes of operation of the iStar cameras when external triggering including: single scan, accumulate, kinetic series, gate step, and integrate on chip (IOC) modes.
