Low-Light CCD

alte2v Technology’s (Chelmsford, England) CCD201 is a large-format 1-k × 1-k, 13-μm pixel image sensor designed for low-light, high-resolution scientific applications. The sensor claims a quantum efficiency of 95 percent with minimal induced noise. Designed for bio-science applications such as drug discovery, bio-luminescence, and fluorescence microscopy, as well as astronomy, the CCD201 is available in front- and back-illuminated formats, both of which offer sub-electron noise and a choice of electron-multiplying or traditional output. Each is capable of operating at an equivalent output noise of less than one electron at pixel rates of over 15 MHz.
