The electron multiplication 12-bit CCD camera system from The Cooke Corporation (Romulus, MI) has a resolution of 1004 × 1002 pixels and is suitable for extreme low-light camera applications. The system features thermo-electrical cooling of the image sensor (down to -45°C vs. ambient) and a quantum efficiency of up to 65%. A high-speed serial data link connects the system to a PC and a fiber optic link is available. Exposure time modes (software selectable) range from 75 μs – 1h.
