EM technology enables charge from each pixel to be multiplied on the sensor before readout, providing single photon sensitivity. The Newton EM platform combines a 1600 x 200 (or 1600 x 400) array of 16 µm pixels, thermoelectric cooling down to -100°C for negligible dark current, 3MHz readout and USB 2.0 plug-and-play connectivity to provide unrivalled performance for spectroscopic applications. The dual output amplifiers allow software selection between either a conventional High Sensitivity or Electron Multiplying outputs to suit a broad range of photon regime conditions. This makes the Newton EMCCD the ideal choice for ultrafast chemical mapping applications e.g. SERS, TERS or luminescence mapping.

EM sensor technology - <1e- read noise

Fringe suppression technology as standard (970-BVF only) - Fringing minimized for NIR applications
