Intended for nanosecond time-resolved imaging, iStar scientific-grade ICCDs combine CCD sensor and gated image intensifier technologies for accelerated acquisitions and sensitivity down to one photon. Features include thermo-electric cooling to -40°C, 500 kHz photocathode gating rates, and intensifier EBI noise reduction. Timing accuracy, down to few tens of picoseconds, allows precise synchronisation of complex experiments through range of I/O triggering options.
Charge Coupled Devices detect extremely low light levels.

Mar 09, 2005 Series S9736 FFT-CCDs utilize MPP mode of operation to achieve dark current of 10 e-/pixel/s at 0°C, readout noise of 4 e-rms, and dynamic range of 75,000. Covering spectral response range of 400â€“1,100 nm, series achieves Quantum Efficiency of 39% at 660 nm. It features 512 x 512 pixel format with pixel size of 24 x 24 mm, achieving 100% fill factor. Four-stage TE-cooled element is built into housing so sensors can be cooled down to -70°C using forced air cooling.
