Raptor Photonics (Larne, Northern Ireland) has launched the Kingfisher V, a deep cooled vacuum-based CCD using Raptor’s new vacuum technology called PentaVac™. The Kingfisher V has 4.54m × 4.54m pixels enabling ultra-sharp image resolution and QE of up to 77%. The extremely low dark current of 0.000001 e/p/s is achieved by deep cooling, either by water or air. Cooling to Δ-111°C will enable long exposure times and readout noise of less than 1.5 electrons. The Kingfisher V is a 16 bit Interline Frame Transfer CCD with both monochrome and color options. The PentaVac™ vacuum has a lifetime warranty.
