High Speed

Having a readout speed of up to 16 MHz and customizable sensors the BLAZE is the fastest spectroscopic CCD available.

The BLAZE delivers up to 1650 spectra per second of full vertical binning, over 14 times more than competitors, with up to 215 kHz spectral rate in kinetics mode.

air cooling

Deep Cooling

Exceptional cooling capabilities with a multi-stage thermoelectric cooling system with custom-designed Peltier devices, the BLAZE can operate at temperatures of -95℃, 15℃ lower than that of competitors.

Permanent all-metal UHV seals allow for reliable long-term operation, providing BLAZE to reach TRUE temperatures of -100℃ with 20℃ liquid assist

revolutionary sensors

Revolutionary Sensors

HR Sensors

The back-illuminated super deep depletion devices offer the highest NIR performance of any spectroscopic CCD available. Delivering 75% quantum efficiency at 1000 nm and optimized spatial resolution, the HR sensor allows for highly sensitive acquisition.

LD Sensors

Achieving very low dark current through the use of advanced, inverted mode, deep depletion devices the LD sensors are able to provide excellent broadband performance and enhanced NIR quantum efficiency.

Lightfield Graph
