Falcon III EMCCD

Vacuum cooled 1MP back-thinned frame-transfer EMCCD with 10μm pixels and UV / NIR response


The Falcon III EMCCD camera is based on e2v’s next generation CCD-351 back-thinned 1″ sensor. It combines high sensitivity, speed and resolution with QE up to 95%.

Lower noise: <0.01e- read noise
Faster readout: x3 faster than previous generations
Higher EM gain: up to x5000 with lower voltages
Colder: cooling down to -100°C for minimal background events
Ultimate QE: up to 95% with back-illuminated sensor
