PyLoN-IR replaces the OMA V InGaAs detector linear photodiode array camera and is the ideal camera for high-performance, near-infrared and SWIR spectroscopy. Two models are available with spectral coverage from 800 nm up to 2.2 µm. PyLoN-IR is responsive in UV and visible with high sensitivity from 800 nm to 1.7 µm or 1.0 to 2.2 µm. This InGaAs detector offers 16-bit digitization and leads the industry with the fastest spectral rate (up to 6600 spectra/sec) and lowest system read noise.

  • Highest sensitivity
  • 16-bit digitization
  • Fastest spectral rate - up to 6600 spectra/sec
  • Dark current is greatly reduced

 

 

PyLoN®-IR is a controllerless, cryogenically-cooled CCD camera designed for quantitative scientific spectroscopy applications demanding the highest possible sensitivity. PyLoN-IR replaces the OMA V InGaAs detector linear photodiode array camera and is the ideal camera for high-performance, near-infrared and SWIR spectroscopy. Two models are available with spectral coverage from 800 nm up to 2.2 μm.

PyLoN-IR is responsive in UV and visible with high sensitivity from 800 nm to 1.7 μm or 1.0 to 2.2 μm. This InGaAs detector offers 16-bit digitization and leads the industry with the fastest spectral rate (up to 6600 spectra/sec) and lowest system read noise. PyLoN-IR applications include NIR Raman and photoluminescence spectroscopy. Liquid nitrogen cooling greatly reduces dark current, while PyLoN’s indium metal seals enhance its vacuum longevity. PyLoN-IR is supported by Princeton Instruments LightField® 64-bit software as well as PI’s IntelliCal® wavelength calibration system.

Tip-Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy
TERS - Tip-Enhanced Raman spectroscopy

Fluorescence, Phosphorescence, and Photoluminescence Spectroscopy
Fluorescence, phosphorescence and photoluminescence occur when a sample is excited by absorbing photons and then emits them with a decay time that is characteristic of the sample environment.

Surface-Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy
SERS - Surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy

Coherent Anti-Stokes Raman Spectroscopy
Coherent Anti-Stokes Raman spectroscopy (CARS) a type of non-linear Raman spectroscopy. Instead of the traditional single laser, two very strong collinear lasers irradiate a sample.

Resonance Raman Spectroscopy
Instead of fluorescence, some types of colored molecules produce strong Raman scattering at certain conditions. This effect was called Resonance Raman.

Stimulated Raman Scattering
Stimulated Raman scattering takes place when an excess of Stokes photons that were previously generated by normal Raman scattering are present or are deliberately added to the excitation beam.

Application Notes

Tip-Enhanced Raman Scattering (TERS)
Researchers: Samuel Berweger and Prof. Markus Raschke – Department of Physics, Department of Chemistry, and JILA, University of Colorado at Boulder used Princeton Instruments' camera and spectrograph for their research.
