Andor Technology (Andor), specialists in scientific imaging and spectroscopy solutions, have announced the launch of their new iKon-M X-ray CCD camera. This extension to the ‘iKon’ family of low light imaging cameras is designed to deliver high-performance solutions to direct detection X-ray needs, and is available in two variants: DO and DY. The iKon-M X-ray CCD camera is available from Scitech .

The DO variant interfaces easily with vacuum chambers, whereas the DY variant is a ‘stand-alone’ camera with a beryllium input window.

The iKon-M CCD camera offers low read noise floor, high QE across the X-ray, XUV and EUV energy ranges. It has negligible dark current with thermoelectric cooling to as low as -90ºC suitable for maximising signal to noise for low photon flux applications. Readout speeds of up to 2.5 MHz enable faster frame rate imaging of dynamic processes.

The following are the features of the iKon-M CCD camera:

  • Unparalleled thermoelectric cooling
  • Ultra low noise readout
  • High QE sensor options
  • Software selectable readout speeds (up to 2.5 MHz)
  • High quantitative dynamic range
  • Software selectable pre-amp sensitivity
  • USB 2.0 PC interface
  • External trigger
  • Vacuum interface options
  • Andor’s Solis-i software and SDK

The following are the benefits of the iKon-M CCD camera:

  • TE cooling to -90°C
  • Down to 2.5 electrons rms with intelligent low noise electronics
  • Back-illuminated sensors for maximum photon capture and high S/N ratio
  • Faster readout for focusing and following dynamic events
  • 16-bit scientific grade A/D; both strong and weak signals in a single frame
  • User configurable system optimisation
  • ’Plug and Play’ connectivity direct from camera to PC
  • TTL input and output for synchronisation to experimental events
  • Rotatable interface flange with integral filter holder (DO variant)
  • User friendly software interfaces for acquisition and analysis
