Andor’s back-illuminated iKon M 912 camera offers the ultimate in dynamic range and photon sensitivity, by virtue of a large 24 μm, high well depth pixel architecture. The camera also offers a QEmax of 95% and exceptionally low readout noise.

The iKon-M 912 benefits from negligible dark current with industry-leading thermoelectric cooling down to -100°C, enabling use of significantly longer exposure times than offered by any other camera on the market using this same sensor. The iKon-M platform offers Multi-Megahertz readout for more rapid acquisition or fast focusing, along with direct USB 2.0 connectivity to PC.

24 µm pixels - The large 24 µm pixels are designed with maximum well and photon collection area in mind.

Unparalleled thermoelectric (TE) cooling performance - Negligible dark current, without the aggravation or safety concerns associated with LN2. Market-exclusive TE cooling specs of -100°C with 10°C water chiller/recirculator available from Andor); -80°C with air-cooling via integrated low-noise fan.

Up to 95% QE - Back-illuminated sensors available for maximum photon capture and higher S/N ratio.

UltraVac™ - Proprietary and proven vacuum process, critical for sustained vacuum integrity, sensor protection and unequalled cooling, year after year.

Ultra low-noise readout - Down to 2.5 electrons rms with intelligent low-noise electronics, offering the most "silent" system noise performance available.

Software selectable readout speeds (up to 5 MHz) - Faster readout for focusing and following dynamic events, slower readout for absolute minimal noise performance.

High quantitative dynamic range - 16-bit scientific grade A/D, quantifying both strong and very weak signals in a single frame.

Single window design - Maximum photon throughput.

Software selectable pre-amp sensitivity - User configurable system optimization.

External trigger - TTL input and output for synchronization to experimental events.
