Suitable for Photon Energy Range 5 eV - 20 keV

LOTTE is the latest product release from greateyes. Equipped with the most advanced cooling concept we have ever built and driven by the most powerful and versatile electronic platform this in-vacuum1 CCD camera is ready to set new standards in its class.

LOTTE utilizes scientific-grade back-illuminated CCD sensors for the detection of EUV, VUV and X-ray signals. The spectral bandwidth covers photon energies between 5 eV and 20 keV. The user can also choose from a variety of sensor formats – small to large – with pixel sizes from 13-26 µm. LOTTE utilises ultra-deep thermoelectric cooling down to -100 °C and has a massive true 18-bit AD conversion for maximum dynamic range. One very important feature that differentiates LOTTE from its nearest rivals is an innovative encapsulated stainless-steel housing to guarantee an extremely low outgassing. LOTTE is compatible with ultra-high vacuum (UHV) standards. Workable pressures can be as low as 10-10 mbar. Signals can be detected at very close range in order to cover wide angles of view or far away as LOTTE can be moved freely within the vacuum chamber as desired. The special design and unprecedented performance make the LOTTE unique and an unrivalled in-vacuum CCD camera for low-light scientific research. Additional handy features are further improving the user experience and adding true value.

1In-vacuum camera means that the full camera is operated under (ultra-high) vacuum conditions.
