Featured Application

At Andor we have created a portfolio of products aimed at the provision of camera solutions for the widest possible range of optical astronomical applications.

Whether the application is surveying star fields for exoplanets with the lowest noise, highest QE CCD; fast-frame adaptive optical systems using EMCCDs to maximise low flux from natural guide stars; or mapping the surface interplay of the sun’s titanic furnace across the corona in high spatial and temporal resolution with an sCMOS camera, we offer a solution, if not several.

Application Notes and Case Studies

The high sensitivity, ultra-low noise performance of Andor Technology's vacuum Thermoelectric (TE) cooled CCD and Electron Multiplying CCD (EMCCD) cameras is well suited to a diversity of demanding astronomy applications.

Flickering Aurora

The beautiful light displays known as aurora occur when energetic charged particles collide with atoms in the high-altitude regions of the atmosphere. One type of aurora, known as flickering aurora, rapidly fluctuates in a manner similar to the reaction of a candle’s flame to a sudden...

Radiometry & Photometry

Radiometry is the science of measuring light in any portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. In practice, the term is usually limited to the measurement of infrared, visible, and ultraviolet light using optical instruments. Irradiance is the intensity of light and is measured in watts per...
