iKon-L 936

Andor’s iKon-L High Dynamic Range CCD camera offers outstanding resolution, field of view, sensitivity and dynamic range performance. It boast a proprietary large area 5-stage TE cooler enabling cooling of this large area sensor down to an unprecedented -100°C without the aggravation of liquid nitrogen. NEW ‘Dual AR Extended Range’ sensor option offers broadest QE coverage, from UV to NIR.

  • TE cooling to -100°C
  • Large area 2048 x 2048 sensor
  • 4-speed readout up to 5 MHz
  • Low read noise
  • UltraVac™

Overview

-100°C Deep-Cooled CCD for Large FOV Imaging

Andor’s iKon-L 936 is designed with scientific imaging in mind. The 2048 x 2048 array and 13.5 μm pixel pitch combine to deliver a 27.6 x 27.6 mm active image area, TE cooled down to -100°C. The iKon-L offers outstanding resolution, field of view, sensitivity and dynamic range performance. Ultimate sensitivity performance is achieved through combination of > 90% QE (back-illuminated sensor), low noise readout electronics and exceptionally deep TE cooling. The NEW Dual AR deep depletion ‘BEX2-DD’ sensor option provides an unmatched QE profile, offering highest possible QE from UV through to NIR.

iKon-L boasts a proprietary large area 5-stage TE cooler (4-stage optional), enabling cooling of this large area sensor down to an unprecedented -100°C without the aggravation of liquid nitrogen or compressed gas cooling, perfect for the longest of exposure times. Such performance renders this camera ideal for low-light applications such as astronomy or luminescence imaging, with ideal OEM adaptability and support. USB 2.0 connectivity and multi-MHz readout options provide for ease of integration and operation.
