Twelve PI-MAX4:2048 ICCD cameras were paramount in the Shock Physics experimental research carried out by Yogendra Gupta of Washington State University at the Argonne National Lab's Advanced Photon Source synchrotron.
The PI-MAX4 intensified cameras are the popular gated imaging and spectroscopy cameras for applications such as LIBS, combustion, quantum computing, photon counting, plasma diagnostics, and frequency-domain/time-domain fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy (FLIM).
Driven by Teledyne Princeton Instruments’ innovative LightField software, the PI-MAX4 ICCD and emICCD cameras are full of ground-breaking features which are packed into its compact design. The features include sustained repetition rates of up to 1 MHz, <500 psec ultra-fast gating, video-rate to over 10,000 spectra per second capture rates, and double image feature (DIF).
The PI-MAX4 cameras support the broadest range of sensors including 1024x256, 1024x1024, 2048x2048 CCDs, 512x512 and 1024x1024 back illuminated EMCCDs, and scientific grade Gen II and Gen III intensifiers
It is not surprising that numerous leading labs worldwide depend on the PI-MAX for their time-resolved imaging and spectroscopy experiments.
The new PI-MAX4:512EM has advanced our time-resolved SRS spectroscopy technique to the next level. It allowed us to capture spectra at a sampling rate of 10 kHz to keep pace with our new high-frequency laser and enabled our novel effort to develop time-series multi-scalar diagnostics in a high-pressure combustor at NASA Glenn Research Center. Unlike an EMCCD camera where gating capability is limited, the ultrafast gating of the emICCD permits me to gate-out background optical flame emission far better — without sacrificing the superior sensitivity, signal gain, and dynamic range of the EMCCD chip.
