CCD technology enhances sensitivity for low-light, nir imaging and spectroscopy

Deep-depletion CCDs and cameras have been developed for low-light, near-infrared (NIR) imaging and spectroscopy. The deep-depletion technology provides significant improvements including reduced etaloning and higher quantum efficiency (QE) across a broader wavelength range (200 to 1100 nm). The new CCDs, with 1340 x 100, 1340 x 400, 1024 x 1024, and 1340 x 1300 resolutions, are available in deep-cooled, low-noise camera platforms. As well as being suitable for broad UV-NIR detection, the new technology is also especially well suited to low-light, NIR imaging and spectroscopy applications, including NIR Raman spectroscopy, solar wafer/cell inspection, NIR luminescence, and astronomy.
