Princeton Instruments will be presenting Sophia, a line of ultra-low-noise scientific cameras. Sophia integrates ultra-low-noise electronics, newly developed software and ArcTec thermoelectric cooling technology.

ArcTec makes use of extensive computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis, an all-metal hermetic vacuum design, and custom-developed Peltier devices to achieve high cooling performance and reliability. The speed and sensitivity of the Sophia series make these cameras ideal for low light level research applications as diverse as photometry, chemiluminescence, astronomy, in vivo small animal imaging, and spectroscopy. In order to facilitate soft x-ray detection, one of the camera variants, the Sophia-XO, uses no antireflective coatings and employs an open-nose design.
