PyLoN series CCD cameras

Princeton has introduced the PyLoN series, a new line of controller-less, cryogenically-cooled CCD cameras, designed for quantitative spectroscopy applications that demand high sensitivity. The first commercially available models in this series are the 100 and 400 dual-amplifier modules that utilise 1340 × 100 and 1340 × 400 sensors, respectively. In creating the new platform, the company redesigned their Spec-10 family of cameras to remove the external controller, increasing experimental flexibility while improving the ultra-low-noise electronics. Liquid nitrogen cooling in the new cameras virtually eliminates dark current, indium metal seals enhance vacuum longevity and binning noise has been reduced from the levels of the Spec-10 platform. Other features include ADC conversion up to 4 MHz, kinetics mode which allows microsecond-resolved kinetic spectral acquisition and custom sensor mode for increased control over the camera readout. The cameras operate on 32-bit and 64-bit Microsoft Windows operating systems and are fully supported by LightField 64-bit data acquisition software featuring IntelliCal wavelength and intensity calibration packages. The GigE interface allows remote operation via a single cable without the need for custom frame grabbers. The cameras area available with or without a 40 mm shutter.
