“On behalf of the Laser Focus World Innovators Awards, I would like to congratulate Teledyne Princeton Instruments on their Gold-level honoree status,” said Laser Focus Word Editor-in-Chief Peter Fretty. “This competitive program allows Laser Focus World to celebrate and recognize the most innovative products impacting the photonics community this year.”

The deeply cooled COSMOS camera, supercharged by the next generation of Teledyne’s LACera™ (large area CMOS image sensor technology), allows astronomers peer deep into the universe. The camera provides unprecedented performance—up to 81 mm x 81 mm imaging area, back side illuminated (BSI) technology, sub electron read noise and >90% peak quantum efficiency.

The CMOS camera is designed for mission-critical operations and delivers performance required by cutting-edge astronomy applications such as low orbital object tracking, exoplanet characterization, time-domain astronomy, and more.
