Newton SY

Andor’s Newton SY series features a high-QE sensors for direct detection of soft X-Ray photons. A convenient beryllium foil window blocks visible wavelengths with minimal ‘Beam Hardening’ of X-ray energies. Variable readout rates enable data readout at up to 3 Megahertz, through the plug and play USB interface.

  • 5 Year Vacuum Warranty
  • ‘Standalone’ Be Window
  • Multi-Megahertz readout
  • Crop mode operation
  • USB 2.0 connection

Newton SY

Andor’s Newton SY series features a high-QE  sensors for direct detection of soft X-ray photons. A convenient Berylium foil window blocks visible wavelengths with minimal ‘Beam Hardening’ of X-ray energies. Direct detection energy range from < 2.5 keV to > 20keV, sensor dependent.

Variable readout rates enable data readout at up to 3 Megahertz, through the plug and play USB interface.

The camera utilizes a 1024 x 255 (1024 x 256 for BR-DD model) or 2048 x 512 array of 26 x 26 μm or 13.5 x 13.5 μm pixels, with thermoelectric cooling down to -100°C, resulting in negligible dark current and provides unrivalled performance for spectroscopic applications. The camera comes with Andor’s UltraVac™ technology providing a worry free 5 year vacuum warranty as standard.
