Swiss Researchers Adapt Spinning-Disc Confocal Laser Microscopy to SWIR/NIR-II Wavelength Range

October 9, 2018

Innovative, Custom-Built System Utilizes Princeton Instruments NIRvana® ST Camera

We are pleased to recognize the groundbreaking work detailed in a recent Scientific Reports article authored by the research group of Dr. Ardemis Boghossian (ISIC, EPFL). Collaborating with personnel from Nikon GmbH and CrestOptics SpA, the Lausanne-based research group has successfully employed a custom-built spinning-disc confocal laser microscope (SDCLM) to make high-resolution measurements in the SWIR/NIR-II wavelength range. The SDCLM incorporates a Princeton Instruments NIRvana ST camera whose cooled InGaAs detector delivers high-QE performance in this key region of the spectrum.

Introducing High-Speed, Ultra-Low-Noise SOPHIA-XO Cameras for Soft X-Ray Applications

May 25, 2018

New SOPHIA-XO cameras utilize back-illuminated CCDs for direct detection of the widest range of VUV and x-rays (~5 eV to 30 keV). These new “XO” camera models, which are extensions of Princeton Instruments’ popular SOPHIA® product line, feature 2048 x 2048 and 4096 x 4096 formats with 100% fill factor, up to 150,000 e- full well, >95% peak QE, and read noise as low as 3.5 e- rms. A 4-port, 16 MHz readout architecture allows the new cameras to deliver more than 3 full frames per second — 7x to 10x faster than previous 2-port cameras.
