EMCCD Electron Multiplying Charge Coupled Devices

Electron Multiplying Charge Coupled Devices or EMCCDs are image detectors capable of detecting single photon events without an image intensifier. They typically exhibit high sensitivity and high speed especially when compared to traditional CCDs. They find are used in areas such as biology and life sciences, astronomy, spectroscopy and x-ray where low lovels of light are encountered.
