Andor designs and manufactures high-performance photonics solutions for scientific research within the physical sciences, providing an extensive, cutting edge product range that spans low light detectors, spectroscopy systems and optical cryostats. We innovate at the cutting edge of photonics, enabling fundamental and applied research in areas as diverse as astronomy, material science, quantum optics, chemistry, catalysis, plasma science and fluid physics.
Andor’s broad portfolio of high-performance imaging cameras are suited to a wide variety of applications across physical sciences and astronomy, from imaging distant galaxies to sub-atomic studies.
Andor’s modular spectroscopy platforms are designed to tackle analytical challenges from UV to SWIR, from macro- to nano-scale, with fluxes down to single photon and time-resolution down to nanosecond. Our range can be seamlessly configured to provide optimised detection solutions for application fields including material science, chemical reactions or plasma science. Spectroscopic techniques include Raman, Luminescence/Fluorescence/PL, Absorption/Reflectance, LIBS/OES and non-linear spectroscopies. Combine with Optical Cryostats for spectroscopy ranging from <3 K to 500 K.
Andor’s range of iStar camera series extracts the best from intensified CCD & sCMOS technologies, offering time-resolved detection capability with shuttering down to <2 nanoseconds, adaptable to both imaging and spectroscopy applications. Fiber-coupling to the image intensifiers provides maximum signal collection efficiency.
Andor’s portfolio of CCD, sCMOS and EMCCD cameras provide a wide range of high sensitivity, high dynamic range and fast detection solutions for benchtop laboratory and beamline experiments. These detectors especially benefit applications in the field of EUV, X-ray, neutron or electron detection for material science, plasma studies, bio-samples analysis or beam/source characterisation.
Andor’s diverse range of Optical Cryostat perfectly complements our comprehensive portfolio of optical cameras, spectrographs and accessories, allowing us to offer complete end-to-end modular solutions to our customers, particularly across spectroscopy and microscopy application fields.
We offer a comprehensive range of customisable products for OEM and industrial use, enabling our customers to integrate into a wide variety of instruments, either existing devices and those in development. The experience and expertise of our design, manufacturing and OEM account management teams ensures the strongest possible supply partner.
