  • Open front end
  • Multi-Megahertz readout
  • TE cooling to -100°C
  • Down to 13.5 x 13.5 μm pixel size
  • Crop mode operation

Newton SO

Andor’s Newton SO series features high-QE sensors for direct detection of soft X-ray, EUV or VUV photons. A convenient 16-point, knife-edge sealed 6” rotatable CF152 flange provides a robust and highly-effective seal to any compatible vacuum chamber interface.

Newton SO features the industry-leading Thermo-Electric (TE) cooling platform, delivering down to -100ºC cooling performance and ensuring access to the lowest dark current.

This 2048 x 512 sensor array with 13.5 x 13.5 µm pixels offers high dynamic range and high spatial resolution. Seamless software selection of a range of kHz and Multi-MHz readout speeds provide exceptionally low readout noise and faster frame rates respectively.
