Andor’s Marana high performance sCMOS camera platforms are ideal for astronomy and physical sciences, offering solutions for large field of view and high-speed imaging/spectroscopy.
Both Marana models feature 4.2 Megapixel sensors, 95% Quantum Efficiency (QE) and market-leading vacuum cooling to -45 °C, making Marana the most sensitive back-illuminated sCMOS platform available. Andor’s unique capability to deliver the ultimate in sCMOS sensitivity means Signal to Noise can be optimized under light starved conditions, ideal for tracking smaller orbital objects, spectroscopic detection of trace concentrations and BEC fluorescence detection of discrete numbers of atoms/ions. Higher sensitivity also means that exposure times can be shortened, facilitating faster frame rate measurements of dynamic processes.
Marana sCMOS reads out 4.2 Megapixel high resolution arrays in less than 50 milliseconds, while maintaining very low read noise; hundreds of times faster than a similar resolution CCD detector.
The innovative ‘dual-amplifier’ approach to extended dynamic range is ideal for accurately visualizing and quantifying challenging scenes that have both extremely weak and bright regions, such as solar measurements and spectroscopic materials characterisations. Furthermore, to achieve best-in-class quantification accuracy, a market-leading linearity of > 99.7% is possible across the whole dynamic range, ideal for accurate photometry.
Marana 4.2B-11: This large field of view option utilizes a unique Anti-Glow Technology approach that enables to usefully access the entire 2048 x 2048 array, offering an impressive 32 mm sensor diagonal, which in combination with fast frame rates up to 24 fps (16-bit) and 48 fps (12-bit), renders the camera ideal for large sky scanning astronomy applications such as orbital debris tracking and Near Earth Asteroid detection. It is also ideal for dense multi-fiber hyperspectral applications. Marana 4.2B-11 also comes with a choice of QE profiles, the UV enhanced option (‘BU’) extending usefulness towards specific application requirements between 260 nm and 400 nm.
