Andor’s iKon CCD camera series
The various iKon CCD models (-M, -L, -XL) provide quantum efficiencies of >90% across a broad wavelength range. The vacuum sensor enclosure allows for thermoelectric cooling down to -100 ° C (absolute sensor temperature) and the camera’s read out electronics guarantee very low read noise characteristics. Andor’s iKon CCD camera solutions are particularly suitable for low-light applications and are also ideal for measurements, which require long exposure times. Such measurements also benefit from the extremely low dark current of this camera series.
The iKon CCD range offers pixel sizes of 13 µm, 13.5 µm, 15 µm and 24 µm and offers excellent linearity (better than 99%) and uniformity.
Further information about the iKon CCD series can be found on Andor Technology's website.
