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.
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.
