Kestrel

Digital Monochrome Scientific Frame Transfer EMCCD, 2,000ps, 128 x 128, 24um x 24um pixels, cooled to -20C .


The digital Kestrel EMCCD camera is based on e2v’s CCD-60 back-thinned 1/3″ sensor. It combines high sensitivity, speed and resolution. with QE up to 95%. It has strong response from UV through to NIR. With EM gain on it offers less than 0.01 electrons read noise. It uses a 16 bit A/D converter and offers a standard CameraLink output. At 2,000 fps, it offers some of the fastest and most sensitive speeds available on the market.
