The digital Kestrel EMCCD camera is based on e2v’s CCD-60 back-thinned 1/3″ sensor. It combines high sensitivity, speed and resolution. with QE up to 95%. It has strong response from UV through to NIR. With EM gain on it offers less than 0.01 electrons read noise. It uses a 16 bit A/D converter and offers a standard CameraLink output. At 500fps in full resolution, it offers some of the fastest and most sensitive speeds available on the market.

Key Features

Ultra low noise readout with THE FASTEST speeds

  • 500 frames per second – Full resolution speed making it the fastest EMCCD on the market
  • 128 x 128 Back-thinned EMCCD sensor – Enables optimum image resolution in low light imaging applications
