Instrument Automation via National Instruments LabVIEW®
While many labs use LabVIEW for instrument automation, quite often researchers find it daunting to create their own vi’s if a sub-vi for a desired function is not provided by the instrument manufacturer. Teledyne Princeton Instruments provides robust documentation and building blocks to help most users perform their desired automation without…Read Full Article
New Scientific CMOS Cameras with Back-Illuminated Technology
Low-light scientific cameras are behind many revolutionary discoveries, ranging from quantum imaging to astronomy. For more than five decades, CCD cameras and their variants —electron-multiplying CCD (EMCCD) and intensified CCD (ICCD) cameras — have provided the single-photon sensitivity and moderate frame rates required for scientific imaging and spectroscopy applications. More recently, scientific CMOS (sCMOS) cameras that are capable of…Read Full Article
Tech Bulletin – Fast Frame Access
Leading-edge applications in quantum physics require fast access to frame data. The Teledyne Princeton Instruments PICam API offers direct control of our cameras, including fast access to live data via event callbacks.
In-house tests demonstrate that full parsing of 1024×1024 frame data on the ProEM® -HS:1024BX3 camera (GigE interface) can be achieved in as little as…Read Full Article
