The MityCCD-H11501 – Enhanced NIR Sensitivity for Raman Spectroscopy and Low-Light Imaging

The MityCCD-H11501 camera, from Critical Link, includes Hamamatsu’s S11501-1007S back-thinned, area scan CCD image sensor, which has improved near infrared (NIR) sensitivity. The sensor works well at wavelengths of more than 800 nm and is suitable to be used in a wide variety of photometric applications, in comparison to previous generations of CCDs. The back of the sensor has a unique MEMS structure, which enables this sensitivity. Hamamatsu’s proprietary laser processing technology is used to develop the MEMS structure.

With the Hamamatsu sensor and an integrated thermoelectric cooler, the MityCCD-H11501 camera exhibits high sensitivity, high signal to noise and signal processing speed, and binning operation. The MityCCD camera is available in a number of OEM configurations.
