iKon-L SY

The iKon-L SY a high energy detector with multiple digitization rates up to 5MHz. It offers outstanding field of view, resolution and dynamic range and widely used across Astronomy and Bio-Imaging OEM applications. It has UltraVac™ cooling to -100°C.

  • ‘Standalone’ Be filter
  • Peak QE of 95%
  • 13.5 x 13.5 μm pixel size
  • Large area 2048 x 2048 sensor
  • Up to 5 MHz pixel readout

iKon-L SY

Andor’s iKon-L SY 936 is designed to block unwanted visible light with it’s built in Berylium foil window while allowing the lowest X-ray photon energies to be imaged. The 2048 x 2048 array and13.5 x 13.5 μm pixels combine to deliver a 27.6 x 27.6 mm active image area.

The iKon-L SY 936 offers outstanding resolution, field of view, sensitivity and dynamic range performance. Ultimate sensitivity performance is achieved through combination of > 90% QE (back-illuminated sensor), optimally selected fibre and low noise readout electronics.

TE cooled for stable performance without the aggravation of liquid nitrogen or compressed gas cooling, perfect for the longest of exposure times. USB 2.0 connectivity and multi-MHz readout options enable seamless integration and operation.
