• Raptor launches new 1MP C-Mount CCD air-cooling to -80°C

    Raptor has enhanced its range of cooled CCD cameras with the launch of the Eagle 1MP. Using a back-illuminated CCD (1056 × 1027 pixels with 13μm × 13μm pixel pitch), the camera is air-cooled to -80°C to minimize dark current for longer exposures. Using low noise electronics, it offers 2.3e- readout noise. It is available […]

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

    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 […]

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

    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 […]

  • Raptor launches the fastest EMCCD on the market

    Raptor Photonics has launched a new EMCCD camera, the Kestrel 1000, offering ultra-low readout noise while running at 1,000 frames per second (fps) in full frame and up to 1,800 fps with ROI. The camera has a 128 x 128 back-thinned sensor with 26um pixels for optimum image resolution in low light imaging applications. It […]
