March 6, 2014 - Featuring -100C deep cooling, iKon-M SY and Newton SY Series of standalone CCD detectors are suitable for high energy applications that require direct detection of soft X-ray region ranging from <2.5 to >20 keV, with rapid readout of 5 MHz and 2 MHz, respectively. Beryllium window, measuring 200 microns thick, blocks all unwanted lower energies and visible wavelengths with minimal beam hardening. Typical applications include soft X-ray imaging and X-ray fluorescence.

Andor Launches Beryllium Window X-ray CCD Series with -100°C Vacuum Cooling

The ‘standalone’ light tight ‘SY’ series now enhanced by UltraVac™ technology

Belfast — Andor Technology, an Oxford Instruments company and a world leader in scientific imaging and spectroscopy solutions, today announced the launch of the iKon-M SY and Newton SY series of CCD cameras. These ‘standalone’ light tight detectors offer -100C deep cooling optimised for the soft X-ray region. The light tight Beryllium window is only 200 microns thick giving an 8% increase in transmission at 3 keV over industry-standard 250 micron windows.

These detectors are the cameras of choice for high energy applications that require direct detection of low flux soft X-ray [<2.5 keV to >20 keV with high spatial resolution, rapid readout iKon-M (5 MHz) and Newton platforms (2 MHz). The 200 micron thick Beryllium window blocks all unwanted lower energies and visible wavelengths with minimal beam hardening. Typical applications include Soft X-ray Imaging and X-ray Fluorescence [XRF. The detectors are fully integrated and supported in a range of third party software using Andor’s SDK, including MATLab, LABView and EPICs. They can also be operated with Andor’s own standalone software interface, SOLIS.

Colin Duncan, Physical Science Application Specialist at Andor, said; “We have yet again emphasised our credentials as leaders in the field of high energy detection, enhancing these already popular market leading series with outstanding -100C deep cooling, the UltraVac™ technology delivering the reassurance of superior quality and longevity.”
