Raptor Launches Eagle V, 4MP Ultra-Sensitive Deep Cooled Vacuum Based CCD

Raptor Photonics, a global leader in the design and manufacture of high performance digital cameras has launched the Eagle V, a “best in class” deep cooled vacuum based CCD using Raptor’s revolutionary vacuum technology PentaVacTM.

The Eagle V uses a 4MP CCD42-40 Back Illuminated, AIMO sensor from e2v technologies. The sensor is 2048 x 2048 pixels with 13.5μm x 13.5μm pixels, with full well capacity of 100,000e- enabling optimum photon collection and a large field of view imaging combined with ultra-sharp image resolution. The Eagle V achieves a QE greater than 90% at 525nm and 50% at 380nm & 720nm.

PentaVac technology combined with multistage TECs and liquid allows active cooling to temperatures lower than delta 110°C, delivering extremely low dark current (0.0001 e/p/s) for exposure times of up to several hours.

The Eagle V runs at 16-bit digital output through a Cameralink data interface delivering low read out noises, 2.3 e- rms @ 75kHz pixel readout rate. The camera also operates @ 2MHz pixel readout rate, with 9.0 e- rms.

According to Mark Donaghy, Raptor’s VP of Sales & Marketing, “We are delighted at the performance of this camera, it truly is “best in class” outperforming all other cameras available on the market today using this sensor.

We have taken our PentaVac engineering technology and applied it to one of the best sensors on the market making Eagle V a perfect option for high resolution fluorescence imaging as well as adaptive optics and astonomy applications.
