Andor’s iKon-L SY 936 is designed to block unwanted visible light with it’s built in Berylium foil window while allowing the lowest X-ray photon energies to be imaged. The 2048 x 2048 array and13.5 x 13.5 μm pixels combine to deliver a 27.6 x 27.6 mm active image area.

The iKon-L SY 936 offers outstanding resolution, field of view, sensitivity and dynamic range performance. Ultimate sensitivity performance is achieved through combination of > 90% QE (back-illuminated sensor), optimally selected fibre and low noise readout electronics.

TE cooled for stable performance without the aggravation of liquid nitrogen or compressed gas cooling, perfect for the longest of exposure times. USB 2.0 connectivity and multi-MHz readout options enable seamless integration and operation.

Standalone’ Be filter - 250 µm Berylium window with a back filled chamber as standard

Peak QE of 95% - High detector sensitivity

13.5 x 13.5 µm pixel size - Optimal balance of dynamic range and resolution

Large area 2048 x 2048 sensor - Large field of view and high resolution

Up to 5 MHz pixel readout - Slower readout for low noise, faster speeds for dynamic processes and 5 MHz for focusing mode

USB 2.0 connection - USB plug and play – no controller box

Ultra-low noise readout - Intelligent low-noise electronics offer the most ‘silent’ system noise available

Dual output - High sensitivity output for low-light applications, or a high capacity output for maximum dynamic range with extensive binning.

Cropped sensor mode - Specialised acquisition mode for continuous imaging with fast temporal resolution.

Enhanced baseline clamp - Essential for quantitative accuracy of dynamic measurements.
