Andor’s iKon series offers outstanding sensitivity performance through a combination of > 95% QE back-illuminated sensors, low noise readout electronics and industry-leading, maintenance-free deep TE-cooling down to -100°C. It features high resolution 1 and 4.2 Megapixel large area sensor options (with 13 and 13.5 μm pixels respectively) for simultaneous high dynamic range and high spatial resolution imaging in the VUV and soft x-ray range.

A convenient 16-point, knife-edge sealed 6” rotatable CF-152 flange provides a robust and highlyeffective seal to any compatible vacuum chamber interface. The iKon-M and -L also offer a USB2 interface and Labview or EPICS compatibility for seamless integration into complex setups.

Open front end - DN100CF / 6” CF / CF-152 flange and knife-edge sealing provided as standard for direct interfacing to vacuum chambers (rotatable design for iKon-M models).

1 MP and 4.2 MP sensor options - Choice of acquisition speed or large field-of-view to best match experimental needs.

13 x 13 µm pixel size - Ideal balance of dynamic range and resolution, on-head binning to extend dynamic range.

Peak QE of 95% - High photon collection efficiency for maximising signal-to-noise ratios. ‘Enhanced’ process back-illuminated sensor options for increased QE in the soft x-ray range.

Thermo-electric cooling down to -100°C - Efficiently minimizes dark current noise for acquisitions requiring longer sensor exposure time, obtain better signal-to-noise ratios faster.

Low noise readout down to 2.9 e- - Intelligent low-noise electronics offer the most ‘silent’ system noise.

Up to 5 MHz pixel readout speed - Slow readout for low noise and best SNR performance, faster speed for studying dynamic processes and 5 MHz focusing mode.

USB 2.0 interface - Built-in robust plug and play interface as standard.

Cropped sensor mode - Tracking stability to ensure all readout circuits experience same temperature and operating conditions.

Enhanced Baseline Clamp - Slower readout for lowest noise, faster speeds for more rapid readout and focusing.
