Syncerity VUV

Deep Cooled Vacuum Ultra Violet Scientific Cameras

High energy camera detection that can interface with a vacuum chamber for measurement down to 120 nm

The new Syncerity VUV Camera features:
• High QE in VUV Range 58% @120 nm (no ARC)
• Attachable to High Vacuum Chamber with Viton®  O-Ring, down to < 10-6  Torr
• TE-cooled to -50°C (Vacuum) or -30°C with N2 Purge Low Dark Current, Low Noise
