sCMOS Cameras - The Future of Fast, High Dynamic Range Soft X-Ray & EUV Detection

Until now, the direct detection of soft X-ray/EUVs has been dominated by slow frame readout CCD cameras. However, recent advancements in the development of ‘uncoated’ scientific CMOS (sCMOS) technology is helping to revolutionise the frame rates accessible to researchers within the fields of High Harmonic Generation, soft X-ray water window tomography, EUV ptychography and EUV/Soft X-ray spectroscopy. 

In this webinar, Thomas Woodward, high energy detection product specialist at Andor Technology, will present an overview of how sCMOS technology functions and introduce Marana-X, Andor’s new open-fronted sCMOS camera for fast, high dynamic range, direct soft X-ray and EUV detection. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand how sCMOS technology functions
  • Recognise the pros and cons of both sCMOS and CCD technologies for the direct detection of EUV/soft X-rays
  • Learn about the new Marana-X camera and its unique features
