App Note: Colliding Plasmas and Stagnation Layers
App Note: Colliding Plasmas and Stagnation Layers
Colliding plasma studies are being used to model and simulate plasma interactions such as those which occurs on the astrophysical scale and those which are used to explore fusion energy generation.

Under the guidance of Prof J Costello, The Plasma Physics group at Dublin City University (DCU) has intensified their research efforts in this area utilising an Andor iStar ICCD camera.

PR: Quantum Imaging Finally Saves Schrödinger's Cat
For the first time, a team of scientists, with a novel experiment using an Andor electron-multiplying CCD (EMCCD) camera, have demonstrated quantum imaging with tangible impact for other imaging applications.

In the elegant experiment they have improved on the previous ghost imaging and interaction-free imaging approaches by both proving the occurrence of quantum imaging and demonstrating the potential for future applications of this technique.

Shamrock 193 Imaging Spectrograph
Shamrock 193 Imaging Spectrograph

Andor’s new Shamrock 193i spectrograph has been designed with research-grade performance, versatility and ease of use in mind.

The ‘intelligent’ motorized adaptive focusing allows access to the very best spectral resolution performance in any configuration with un-matched repeatability.

PR: Andor iXon 897 Visualises Simulated Quantum Matter
A team of physicists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics is gaining unique insights into the nature of solid materials by monitoring the behaviour of quasi-crystalline ‘super atoms’ created inside a giant, room-sized Quantum Simulator, capturing the interactions with an Andor iXon EMCCD camera.

“Acquiring images of the atoms in the quasi crystals demands a detector with exceptional sensitivity and we chose the Andor iXon EMCCD camera." said Dr Immanuel Bloch.

App Note: Automated 2D Elemental Mapping
App Note: Automated 2D Elemental Mapping
The technique known as “chemical mapping” or “chemical imaging” is of a great interest in the field of chemical material analysis. It can provide in very clear visual form information about the surface distribution of the individual chemical elements in the analysed area.

A group in the ‘Laboratory of Laser Spectroscopy’ at the Institute of Physical Engineering, Brno University, Czech Republic, under the guidance of Prof Jozef Kaiser, has demonstrated successfully chemical mapping based on LIBS spectroscopy utilising an Andor Mechelle 5000 spectrograph.

PR: iXon Ultra 897 Camera Probes Moments after Big Bang
The Andor iXon Ultra 897 EMCCD camera has been used by a team of scientists to probe the nature of the symmetry-breaking phase transitions that began the process of creating our universe – the Kibble-Zurek mechanism.

The multinational team working with Dr Tanja Mehlstaeubler of the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) in Germany has demonstrated atomic-scale topological defects under controlled laboratory conditions for the first time.

App Note: Measuring Ion Temperatures and Helium Densities in the Hot Core of a Nuclear Fusion Reactor using sCMOS and EMCCD Cameras
App Note: Measuring Ion Temperatures and Helium Densities in the Hot Core of a Nuclear Fusion Reactor using sCMOS and EMCCD Cameras
Fusion research has entered a new era by the decision to build ITER, the world's first reactor, to demonstrate a 10 fold power multiplication based on the process of nuclear fusion. With this big international, multi-billion euro project, the requirements on the diagnostic tools change considerably.

A real-time measurement and analysis of the plasma parameters such as temperature or density is needed. For one such diagnostic technique a set of three Andor cameras was used (two DC152 QC-FI sCMOS camera and one iXon3 DU888 DC-EX EMCCD camera).
