Andor Technology has announced the launch of the new, enhanced iKon-M 912 back-illuminated CCD camera, offering high dynamic range and low noise performance. The 512 × 512 CCD array with 24-μm pixels has been optimised for extremely high well depth and maximum photon collection per pixel. The ultrasensitive camera delivers up to 95% QE, 3 e read noise and a superb 300,000 e pixel well depth. The iKon-M 912 also benefits from negligible dark current with industry-leading vacuum thermoelectric cooling down to –100°C, enabling use of long exposure times for weak signal detection. An enhanced electronic design facilitates multiple readout speeds ranging from 50 kHz up to 5 MHz, the latter facilitating fast frame rate usage or focusing.
