Radiation Hard Lens for Color Sensors

The new Model 346 non-browning lens from Resolve Optics Ltd. (Chesham, UK) has been designed to operate with color sensors in areas subject to radiation. For any camera lens to survive even quite low levels of radiation, without degradation, they should be produced from non-browning ceriumdoped glass. Unfortunately most non-browning glasses are yellow tinted, which gives color images acquired by CMOS cameras a yellow appearance.

High-Speed Infrared Cameras

FLIR Systems (Wilsonville, OR) has added the FLIR RS8300 to its RS-Series of long-range infrared camera systems. The new FLIR RS8300 couples a proprietary highspeed HD MWIR detector with a 10x continuous zoom lens in a sealed, ruggedized enclosure. The FLIR RS8300 delivers infrared imagery at up to 200 megapixels per second. Four active preset operating modes provide adjustable integration times, embedded non-uniformity correction, bad pixel replacement, and window size adjustments.

Back-Illuminated CCD Camera

Andor Technology (Belfast, Northern Ireland), an Oxford Instruments company, has launched the new, enhanced iKon-M 912 back-illuminated CCD camera, offering high dynamic range and low noise performance. The 512 × 512 CCD array with 24 megapixels has been optimized for extremely high well depth and maximum photon collection per pixel. The ultrasensitive camera delivers up to 95% QE, 3 e- read noise, and 300,000 e- pixel well depth. The iKon-M 912 also benefits from negligible dark current with industry-leading vacuum thermoelectric cooling down to -100°C, enabling use of extremely long exposure times for weak signal detection. An enhanced electronic design facilitates multiple readout speeds ranging from 50 kHz up to 5 MHz, the latter facilitating fast frame rate usage or focusing.
