Andor ZL41 Wave sCMOS

Versatile and powerful workhorse camera for physical sciences




ZL41 Wave is the next generation in the highly successful Zyla sCMOS series, specifically for physical science and astronomy researchers. Superb imaging and spectroscopic flexibility, compactness for tight optical spaces, extensive software compatibility and exceptional price/performance value.



  • Up to 82% QE
  • < 1 e- read noise
  • Up to 100 fps
  • 32-bit binning mode
  • Spectroscopy modes
  • Operate down to -20°C ambient

Andor's ZL41 Wave physical sciences sCMOS camera platform delivers sheer excellence in speed, sensitivity, dynamic range and resolution, with comprehensive imaging and spectroscopy functionalities. Building upon the strengths of the original Zyla sCMOS series, the cost-effective, compact, thermoelectrically cooled design of ZL41 Wave benefits from a reengineered and enhanced sensor chamber and is supported within a wide range of physical science software environments, integrating perfectly into any optical laboratory or observatory setting.


ZL41 Wave 4.2 provides exceptional sensitivity from a combination of 82% QE and very low 0.9 e- read noise from a 4.2 Megapixel sensor. Ideal for pushing frame rates in light starved applications within astronomy, quantum imaging, quantum computing, spectroscopy and 3D-tomography fields.


ZL41 Wave 5.5 ZL41 Wave 5.5 is an ideal workhorse camera, a highly cost-effective and flexible solution that delivers a superior field of view from a 5.5 Megapixel sensor. Furthermore, this camera offers 2-in-1 rolling and true global shutter functionality. Global shutter is key to techniques such as particle imaging velocimetry (PIV) and astronomical object tracking.
