ProEM®Brilliance in resolution, speed and precision

ProEM photo

The ProEM® is a high-resolution, back-illuminated EMCCD with exclusive eXcelon3 sensor technology providing high sensitivity within the UV-NIR range while reducing etaloning. With spectral rates of up to 20 kHz and single-photon sensitivity, the ProEM is ideal for low-light-level applications such as hyperspectral Raman imaging and single-molecule fluorescence.

  • 10 μm pixel size
  • 1 megapixel image array EMCCD
  • eXcelon3 technology
  • Ultra-high-speed readout and spectra-kinetics

Key Features

High UV-NIR Sensitivity

Taking advantage of eXcelon3 technology, the ProEM delivers highest sensitivity (>95% QE) within the UV and NIR range, while reducing etaloning, the appearance of fringes attributed to constructive and destructive interference, from the back-illuminated EMCCDs.

Deep Cooling to -90℃

The use of unique vacuum technology allows the ProEM to reach deep cooling of up to -90℃. This delivers ultra-low dark current for long exposure times, with a single input window for maximum sensitivity.

Advanced Frame Transfer Architecture

The ProEM uses frame transfer architecture which eliminates the need for a mechanical shutter, permitting continuous readout of an image or spectrum.

Full-frame imaging rates of up to 34 fps or >3 kHz can be sustained in high speed readout mode, with baseline stability guaranteed within a single count with bias correction.

EM Gain Calibration

The ProEM utilizes the built in OptiCAL – a reference light source providing once-click gain calibration ensuring consistent performance over camera lifetime.

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.
