Deep-cooled Scientific Spectroscopy Camera Perfect for Low Light and Ultrafast spectroscopy
HORIBA Scientific, global leader in Optical Spectroscopy systems, launched its new Synapse EM, a deep cooled EMCCD Scientific camera for low light and ultra-fast spectroscopy experiments. The Synapse EM is available in front and back illuminated for optimal quantum efficiency. With a sensor format of 1600 x 200 or 1600 x 400 and a pixel size of 16 microns, the Synapse EM is the ideal candidate for high spectral resolution measurements. The camera comes with a standard dual readout mode that allows the users to switch automatically between EMCCD mode for low light measurements and conventional CCD mode for standard spectroscopy.
The Synapse EM comes with several sensor options including the QExtra technology. QExtra technology is available standard in the Synapse EM-BIQX and is an anti-reflective multi-layer coating designed to greatly improve quantum efficiency of back illuminated sensors over a broad spectral range, while suppressing undesirable etaloning effects.
“With a maximum frame rate above 1,600 spectra per second and outstanding linearity, the Synapse EM is the ideal EMCCD scientific camera for Raman, SERS/TERS, multi-track, transient and single molecule spectroscopic applications,” said Eric Teboul, Deputy General Manager and Vice President of HORIBA Scientific. “The addition of this new EMCCD camera complements our other lines of deep cooled, high performing spectroscopic scientific cameras, such as the Syncerity and Symphony II cameras.”
