The USB2.0-based iDus series is a compact, yet feature-rich platform suitable for demanding spectroscopy applications such as low-light UV/NIR Photoluminence or Raman spectroscopy, as well as day-to-day routine laboratory operation and integration into industry-grade systems.
The iDus 420 boasts market-leading deep thermo-electric cooling to -100°C, complemented by Andor’s UltravacTM technology with its un-matched reliability track record in the scientific and industrial community. The iDus low-noise electronics allows seamless access to the best signal-to-noise ratio performance for the widest range of photon detection regimes.
This 1024 x 255 pixel matrix boasts a range of far UV and VIS-optimized back-thinned sensors & NIR-optimized back-illuminated (‘fringe-suppressed’) sensor options. Its, 26 x 26 μm pixel size is optimized for high dynamic range and high resolution, while its 6.6 mm height is ideally suited to multi-track spectroscopy.
Peak QE of 95% - Visible-optimized ‘BV/BVF’, infrared-optimized ‘BR-DD’ and broadband UV-NIR ‘BEX2-DD’ model
Fringe suppression technology as standard (BVF and BR-DD models) - Fringing greatly reduced (Deep-Depletion) or minimized (Back-Thinned ‘BVF’)
Extended range dual-AR option - Superior UV-NIR broadband QE
TE cooling to -100°C - Critical for elimination of dark current detection limit - no inconvenience associated with LN2
UltraVac™ - Critical for sustained vacuum integrity and to maintain unequalled cooling and QE performance, year after year
Single UV-grade fused silica window - Best UV-NIR throughput performance, specific AR coating and wedge options available
USB 2.0 connection - Ideal for laptop operation. Seamless operation alongside USB-based Shamrock spectrograph family
26 x 26 μm pixel size - Optimized pixel format for high dynamic range and resolution
Software selectable Pre-Amplifier Gain - Choice of best SNR performance of dynamic range at the touch of a button
