Falcon III XV – In Vacuum X-Ray

In-Vacuum, Digital Monochrome EMCCD X-Ray Camera

The Falcon III XV is Raptor’s latest offering for the in-vacuum X-Ray market, perfect for imaging very weak X-Ray samples close to UV and VUV, where speed is important. Using a next-generation uncoated EMCCD sensor offering 1MP resolution with 10µm square pixels, the Falcon III XV offers ultimate sensitivity and low noise, running at 30 fps in full resolution, faster if ROI’ed or binned. The Falcon III XV is available with a range of feedthrough options – including trigger, liquid, power and CameraLink.


The fastest scientific x-ray camera on the market

  • In-Vacuum – High energy in-vacuum direct detection
  • Back-illuminated EMCCD with no coating – Optimises sensitivity and large field of view imaging from 1.2keV to 20keV
  • Fast frame rate in full frame resolution: 30fps – Ideal for fast repetition rates
  • Deep cooled to -70°C – For minimal background events
