PyLoN®Extremely Low Noise Liquid Nitrogen Cooled Cameras

PyLoN photo

PyLoN® supports 1340 x 100 to 2048 x 2048 cryogenically cooled CCDs with flexible readout design, 120-1100 nm sensitivity, digital correlated double sampling and bias stabilization.

  • 120 – 1100 nm sensitivity
  • -120℃ cryogenic cooling
  • 50 kHz – 4 MHz readout speeds
  • Ultra low noise

Key Features

PyLoN graph

Broad range sensitivity

The PyLoN 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.

Cryogenic cooling

Cooled to -120℃ the PyLoN delivers ultralow dark current, ~1 e-/p/hour, for exposure times of minutes to hours.

A single input window offers maximum sensitivity, with once a day refill requirement. Experimental flexibility is also offered with optional end-on and all-directional dewars.

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.

In addition, the PyLoN improves linearity with its digital correlated double sampling and bias stabilization, giving the best read noise performance below 1 MHz readout speed, a constant baseline for multiple exposure and long integration time applications.

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.
