Superfast Camera for Nanosecond Time-resolved Imaging
Andor has released its new iStar intensified sCMOS camera with a unique combination of nanosecond gating, high sensitivity, high dynamic range and superfast frame rate.
The new camera offers frame rates at least 50% faster than competing CCD or interline cameras while offering intrinsically low noise floor. A better signal-to-noise ratio can be achieved with lower intensifier gain, yielding higher dynamic range.
The iStar series offers <2ns optical gating on a range of high QE Gen 2 and Gen 3 intensifiers, with gating repetition rates up to 500kHz. The fully integrated, triple output delay generator features an ultra-low insertion delay and excellent timing accuracy down to a few 10's of picoseconds, allowing for extremely precise synchronisation of complex experiments through a comprehensive range of input/output triggering options.
The acquisition speed, sensitivity and gating capabilities of the iStar sCMOS make it a highly attractive choice for fast plasma imaging, combustion studies based on Planar Laser-Induced Fluorescence (PLIF), transient absorption and time-resolved luminescence.
