iDus series – the most sensitive NIR CCD platform

Andor’s iDus 416 platform boasts a unique combination of very low dark noise and high QE, offering unrivalled sensitivity in the near-infrared.

This makes it the ideal detector for NIR Raman and Photoluminescence, reducing greatly acquisition times and removing the need for inconvenient LN2 cooling.

  • iDus DV416A-LDC-DD with 3-stage peltier cooling
  • iDus DU416A-LDC-DD with 4-stage peltier cooling

The unique 2000 x 256, 15 µm pixel array allows extended, broadband and high resolution spectral acquisition, while the fringe suppression technology virtually eliminates the optical etalonning at the higher wavelengths. All iDus 416 models can be seamlessly integrated with Andor’s Shamrock spectrographs as well as with spectrographs from other manufacturers.
