Synapse EMCCD Scientific Camera

EMCCD Scientific Camera

HORIBA’s high spectral resolution EMCCD Scientific Cameras with various image areas are Ideal for high-speed or multi-track spectroscopy. With readout rates of up to 3 MHz, our cameras can acquire more than 1,600 spectra per second. Our EMCCD Scientific Cameras include dual EMCCD and CCD readout modes for a broad range of light conditions and deep thermoelectric cooling with air or liquid circulation to minimize dark current. And our single fused-silica vacuum window minimizes reflection losses from UV to the near-IR.
