    Leave a Comment

    Raptor Photonics was set up in September 2006 to design and manufacture high-performance cameras for a range of markets including scientific, surveillance, aerospace and industrial. The company has grown year on year and now sells cameras in over 50 countries around the world to a range of instrumentation companies, government bodies, research labs and universities.

    Raptor has become the market leader in SWIR camera technology and our cameras are used in a variety of applications including low light day and night-time imaging, spectroscopy, fluorescence, high-energy X-Ray, time-resolved, in-vivo imaging. Raptor’s cameras can be found in instrumentation from the sea-bed to space, including the ISS. They can also be  found on the microscopes, spectrometers, beamlines and telescopes of some of the world’s leading research establishments and OEMs. The high-performance of Raptor’s cameras are helping customers to discover new ways of seeing.

    Raptor has offices in Larne, Northern Ireland and Norcross, Georgia, United States and works with a variety of channels and distributors around the world to service and support customers.

  7. Raptor camera used in XUV, Soft X-ray and Extreme Ultraviolet (EUV) spectroscopy applications

    Leave a Comment

    High energy spectroscopy requires precision analytical tools that help scientists and researchers to investigate molecular and atomic spectra from the infrared into the soft x-ray and short ultraviolet wavelength regions. Raptor has worked with McPherson Instruments to develop a unique solution using their Model 251MX flat field spectrograph and Raptor’s Eagle XO, a cooled, direct detection CCD.

  8. Raptor SWIR camera used for In-Vivo Imaging in NIR-II (600-1700nm)

    Leave a Comment

    Non-invasive fluorescence imaging of small animals has been a technique widely used for years as a method in preclinical research. Techniques have developed considerably in recent years, but still face a number of limitations. Researchers detecting in the 500-900 nm range suffer from shallow imaging depth and high background due to light scattering and tissue autofluorescence. Over the last five years there has been a growing interest in NIR-II/SWIR imaging detecting in the 1000-1700 nm range to greatly suppress these effects, affording single-cell resolution at ~ 3 mm depth and useful resolving power at up to ~ 1 cm depth. Raptor has worked closely with Nirmidas to develop the right camera choice for DeepVision, the Ninox 640-II.
