Princeton Unveils EMCCD Camera for Spectroscopy Applications

Princeton Instruments announced that it has unveiled a new electron multiplying (EM) CCD camera solution for spectroscopy applications.

EMCCD Camera

The ProEM:1600 camera is equipped with 16-µm pixels in 1600×400 and 1600×200 formats. It utilizes eXcelon technology to decrease the interference fringes, which have made the EMCCDs unsuitable in the NIR regions.

The camera’s conventional CCD mode offers reduced read noise and its electron-multiplying mode captures swift dynamics. The 1.5-µs vertical shift time and the 6.67-MHz readout rate generate acquisition rates of more than 3000 spectra/s. The ProEM:1600 camera is ideal for single-molecule spectroscopy, hyperspectral imaging, and Raman spectroscopy applications.

The camera features OptiCAL EM gain calibration, Noise Suppression technology and a Bias Active Stability Engine. Its all-metal-seal design provides low dark current and deep thermoelectric cooling. The camera also features a Gigabit Ethernet interface that allows remote operation through a single cabinet without requiring custom frame grabbers. The camera functions on 64 and 32-bit Microsoft Windows operating systems.
