Andor’s iKon-L High Dynamic Range CCD camera offers outstanding resolution, field of view, sensitivity and dynamic range performance. It boast a proprietary large area 5-stage TE cooler enabling cooling of this large area sensor down to an unprecedented -100°C without the aggravation of liquid nitrogen. NEW ‘Dual AR Extended Range’ sensor option offers broadest QE coverage, from UV to NIR.
Andor’s iKon-L 936 is designed with scientific imaging in mind. The 2048 x 2048 array and 13.5 µm pixel pitch combine to deliver a 27.6 x 27.6 mm active image area, TE cooled down to -100°C. The iKon-L offers outstanding resolution, field of view, sensitivity and dynamic range performance. Ultimate sensitivity performance is achieved through combination of > 90% QE (back-illuminated sensor), low noise readout electronics and exceptionally deep TE cooling. The NEW Dual AR deep depletion ‘BEX2-DD’ sensor option provides an unmatched QE profile, offering highest possible QE from UV through to NIR.
iKon-L boasts a proprietary large area 5-stage TE cooler (4-stage optional), enabling cooling of this large area sensor down to an unprecedented -100°C without the aggravation of liquid nitrogen or compressed gas cooling, perfect for the longest of exposure times. Such performance renders this camera ideal for low-light applications such as astronomy or luminescence imaging, with ideal OEM adaptability and support. USB 2.0 connectivity and multi-MHz readout options provide for ease of integration and operation.
Broad wavelength coverage - Now available with BR-DD (red/NIR), BEX2-DD (UV-NIR Broadband) and BU2 (UV/blue) sensor options
TE cooling to -100°C - Critical for elimination of dark current detection limit
Fringe Suppression Technology™ - NIR etaloning greatly reduced (BEX2-DD and BR-DD sensor types)
4-speed readout up to 5 MHz - Slower readout for low noise, faster speeds for dynamic processes and 5 MHz for vizualization mode
Ultra low noise readout - Intelligent low-noise electronics offer the most ‘silent’ system noise performance available
Large area 2048 x 2048 sensor - Large field of view and high resolution.
UltraVac™ - Critical for sustained vacuum integrity and to maintain unequalled cooling and QE performance, year after year
Dual output - High Sensitivity output for low-light applications, or High Capacity output for maximum dynamic range
Integrated shutter - F-mount (EF optional) with integrated programmable 45 mm shutter
Fast Kinetics & Cropped Sensor modes - For fast temporal resolution down to sub-millisecond
