Andor Technology offers back-illuminated, deep-depletion CCD technology on the iDus platform. This new technology offers a combination of sensitivity in the near-infrared (NIR) and resolution, opening new possibilities for faster, higher resolution Raman, photoluminescence, plasmonics, or broadband absorption without the need for Liquid Nitrogen (LN2) use. Thermo-Electric cooling to -95oC ensures that the best signal-to-noise can be achieved (it is not only dark current that maters for NIR CCD detectors). The iDus 416 also offers a combination of 15 μm pixel for high resolution spectroscopy, and a 30 mm wide sensor for superior simultaneous spectral bandpass collection. The fringe-suppression process, ensuring very low optical etaloning, also comes as standard. Its plug-and-play USB2.0 connectivity offers convenient and rapid set up, as well as transportability when connecting to laptops and running in parallel with Andor’s Shamrock spectrograph series.
