0.13, 0.26 MP; Pixel Size 26x26 µm; Image Area 26.6x6.6 mm; 16 bit; USB 2.0

The USB2.0-based iDus series are compact, yet feature-rich CCD camera platforms 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 401 and 420 CCD cameras boast 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.

iDus 401 cameras are deep depletion spectroscopy CCD cameras. Anti-fringing comes as standard on back-thinned and back-illuminated sensors for this 1024 x 127, 26 μm pixels array optimized for high dynamic range, high resolution and rapid data acquisition from Far UV to NIR.

iDus 420 cameras are high speed spectroscopy CCD cameras. This 1024 x 255 pixel matrix boasts a range of far UV and VIS-optimized back-thinned sensors and 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.


Key Features:

  • Peak QE of 95%: Visible-Optimized ‘BV/BVF’, Infrared-Optimized ‘BR-DD’ and Broadband UV-NIR ‘BEX2-DD’ Models
  • TE cooling to -100°C: Critical for Elimination of Dark Current Detection Limit - No Inconvenience Associated With LN2.
  • UltraVac™
  • Single Window Design
  • 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 For Superior UV-NIR Broadband QE
