Hamamatsu Photonics introduces the ImagEM
1K C9100-14 EMCCD camera, which offers high resolution, high sensitivity, and
high speed imaging for advanced applications. For those situations where
ordinary CCDs or Scientific CMOS cameras are unsuitable, the ImagEM 1K offers
the ultimate solution, thanks to a back-thinned EMCCD with peak quantum
efficiency in excess of 90%, combined with the proven ability of Hamamatsu to create cameras
of excellent quality.
The camera can be operated as either an
EMCCD or as a standard CCD camera. In both modes, there are multiple settings
available that have been optimised for different applications/readout speeds,
meaning that the ImagEM 1K can do the job of several traditional cameras. This versatility
represents excellent value for research lab budgets and is also the reason for
its widespread popularity in fluorescence microscopy, semiconductor, and solar
cell inspection and pharmaceutical drug discovery.
The ImagEM 1K guarantees accurate, repeatable
16-bit data acquisition up to 242 frames/sec. With 1M pixels at 13 µm, it is
possible to capture signals with high dynamic range; EM gain of up to 1,200
ensures that even the weakest signals will be visible.
