iDus 416

Share this on social media:

Andor Technology has launched its back-illuminated, deep-depletion CCD technology on the iDus platform. This new technology offers sensitivity in the near-infrared (NIR) and high resolution, opening new possibilities for faster, higher resolution Raman, photoluminescence, plasmonics or broadband absorption.

Andor’s iDus 416 Low Dark-Current, Deep-Depletion (LDC-DD) technology offers superb dark current performance and up to 95 per cent quantum efficiency. Thermo-electric cooling to -95°C provides an excellent signal-to-noise ratio.

The iDus 416 also boasts a combination of 15μm pixel for high resolution spectroscopy, and a 30mm wide sensor for 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.
