Andor’s Newton 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 a 1024 x 255 (26 µm pixel) and a 2048 x 512 (13.5 µm pixel) matrix options optimised for high dynamic range & high speed and high spatial resolution Spectroscopy in the VUV and soft x-ray range.

A convenient 16-point, knife-edge sealed 6” rotatable CF-152 flange provides a robust and highly-effective seal to any compatible vacuum chamber interface. The Newton SO platform also offers 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).

1024 x 255 and 2048 x 512 sensor options - Choice of high acquisition speed and dynamic range or high resolution.

26 x 26 and 13.5 x 13.5 µm pixel size options - Ideal balance of dynamic range and resolution.

Peak QE up to 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 2.5 e- - Intelligent low-noise electronics offer the most ‘silent’ system noise.

Up to 5 MHz pixel readout speed (3 MHz for 940 model) - Slow readout for low noise and best SNR performance, faster speed for studying dynamic processes.

Cropped sensor mode - Specialized acquisition mode for continuous imaging with fast temporal resolution, spectral rates up to 1,600 sps.

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

Enhanced baseline clamp - Slower readout for lowest noise, faster speeds for more rapid readout and focusing

Software Development Kit (SDK) - Ease of control integration into complex setups: Matlab, Labview, Visual Basic, C/C++ or Linux.

Integrated in EPICS - Seamless integration and operation at EPICS-based particle accelerators.

Filter and filter holders options - Accommodate beryllium (or aluminium) windows with thickness down to 200 µm for removal of unwanted lower energy radiations

Open-front to standalone converter options - Provides maximum flexibility – camera can attach directly to a vacuum chamber, or be used as standalone with a beryllium filter
