Princeton Instruments has added to its ProEM-HS line of high-speed EMCCD cameras. The ProEM-HS:1024BX3 is a 1,024 x 1,024 pixel back-illuminated EMCCD camera with eXcelon3 technology (X3) for low-light imaging and spectroscopy applications. This latest camera offers a combination of high sensitivity (>95 per cent QE) and best fringe suppression in the near infrared as well as single-photon sensitivity.

Enabled by 30MHz ADC readout capability, the camera delivers 25 full frames per second. Furthermore, this next-generation camera provides 4,400 fps with reduced ROI as well as 20,000 spectra per second, using high-speed, custom readout modes. Additionally, the spectra-kinetics mode is designed to deliver 300,000 spectra per second in burst mode.

Thanks to all-metal, hermetic XP vacuum seal technology and a lifetime vacuum guarantee, this ProEM-HS camera is thermoelectrically cooled to below -65°C using air and liquid. Other features include a built-in light source for precise electron multiplication (EM) gain calibration, baseline stability, hardware time-stamping, and a Gigabit Ethernet data interface.

The ProEM-HS camera is fully compatible with Princeton Instruments’ LightField software which provides complete control of camera features via a graphical user interface. For researchers requiring a custom interface, drivers for National Instruments’ LabView and MathWorks’ MatLab are included, as are free software development kits (SDKs).

The ProEM-HS family of high-speed EMCCD cameras is also designed for easy integration with the Princeton Instruments IsoPlane spectrographs.
