This series of highly sensitive, cooled in-vacuum cameras is equipped with ultra-low noise 16-bit readout electronics and perfectly suited for spectroscopy and imaging applications in the VUV, EUV and X-ray range up to 20 keV. Due to the large full well capacity, very high signal-to-noise ratios are possible. The CCD detectors deliver spectra and images with outstanding dynamic range. To find the best solution for your application, greateyes offers scientific CCD sensors with different technologies and with quantum efficiencies up to 98%.

  • Completely stainless steel or aluminum housing
  • Up to 98% peak quantum efficiency
  • Max. full well capacity of 700 ke-
  • Vacuum compatibility: < 1 x 10-8 mbar
