Teledyne brings its Engineering Innovation to SPIE’s Astronomical Telescopes + Instrumentation Conference

July 5, 2022

Trenton, New Jersey, USA – Teledyne Princeton Instruments is pleased to announce their participation in SPIE Astronomical Telescopes + Instrumentation 2022, held July 17-22, at Palais des Congrès de Montréal in Montréal, Québec, Canada. Teledyne is exhibiting in booth #200.

In addition to showcasing its newest offerings, Teledyne Princeton Instruments is hosting a forum and networking reception entitled “Enabling New Discovery” for astronomers, researchers, and industry professionals, in conjunction with the conference. The event will take place from 7:00 – 9:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 19 at the OASIS Immersion, Palais des Congrès de Montréal. Register here for the event.

During the networking event, leading scientists will provide briefings on the development of state-of-the-art astronomical instrumentation for ground- and space-based observatories. Teledyne’s own technologists and engineers will discuss their new large-format 8k x 8k deeply cooled COSMOS™ sCMOS camera for ground-based astronomy.

To underscore Teledyne’s commitment to shaping the future of ground-based astronomy, Teledyne Princeton Instruments’ Chief Technology Officer, Jason McClure will present,  “COSMOS large-format 66 Megapixel CMOS camera for ground-based astronomy,” at 4:50 p.m. on Sunday, July 17.  

The COSMOS™ camera is the only large format, high-performance sCMOS camera designed and manufactured entirely within a single source. Teledyne’s proprietary LACera™ back side illuminated (BSI) image sensor technology, COSMOS delivers deep-cooled, low-noise performance on a multi-megapixel scale with global shutter, 18-bit readout, and glow reduction technology. 

“With >90% peak quantum efficiency, low noise, and superior light collection, the COSMOS camera is ideal for orbital object tracking, time-domain astrophysics, exoplanet research, and more wide-field imaging applications,” said Ravi Guntupalli, vice president and general manager of Teledyne Princeton Instruments. “With the most advanced cooling and hermetically sealed vacuum technology, BSI sensor with rolling and global shutter, and fully integrated software, COSMOS ushers a new era in CMOS cameras for Astronomy.”
