PIXISHigh-Performance, Low-Noise Cameras

PIXIS CCD Camera

PIXIS cameras are fully integrated, low-noise cameras with deep cooling for quantitative scientific imaging and spectroscopy from UV-NIR. High-quantum efficiency and ultra-low-noise electronics make PIXIS cameras ideal for demanding low-light applications.

  • ~120-1100 nm sensitivity
  • -90℃ deep cooling
  • Support for CCDs of varying sizes
  • Flexible readout design

Key Features

Broad Range Sensitivity

The PIXIS offers the broadest wavelength coverage, from ~120 – 1100 nm, for the widest variety of applications.

With >95% quantum efficiency (QE) with selected CCDS, high QE in UV with UV enhanced CCD and enhanced sensitivity and reduced etaloning with eXcelon™ technology.

Unique Vacuum Technology

The PIXIS offers deep cooling to -90℃ with air or liquid, providing ultra-low dark current for long exposure times.

The single input window delivers maximum sensitivity with maintenance-free operation.

eXcelon photo

Enhanced Sensitivity With eXcelon™

eXcelon™ technology enhances the sensitivity of the PIXIS, delivering higher quantum efficiency and reduced etaloning.

Ultimate Flexibility

Dual-amplifier readout design allows for optimization of system performance. The high sensitivity amplifier reduces read noise for weak signals, and the high capacity amplifier offering increased effective dynamic range.

Lightfield Graph

Powered by LightField Software

Powerful and intuitive software with built-in math engine allows for the complete control of cameras and spectrographs, with real-time image analysis and spectral data.

LightField software provides seamless integration of hardware controls and direct data acquisition into programmes such as National Instruments’ LabVIEW® and MathWorks’ MATLAB®. This software also fully supports IntelliCal automated wavelength and intensity calibration.
