High resolution, low noise, Deep cooled, digital SWIR camera

 has launched the Ninox 640 SU, a vacuum cooled InGaAs based camera with 640×512 sensor with a 15µm x 15µm pixel pitch for the highest spatial resolution. The Ninox 640SU is vacuum cooled to -80°C for ultra-long exposures of up to 5 minutes. Its ultra-low dark current and read-noise result in the best “scientific” SWIR camera on the market today. It is the perfect camera for staring applications in SWIR wavelengths (from 900nm – 1700nm) including NIR-II In-Vivo Imaging, Fluorescence Imaging and Astronomy.

Raptor Photonics continues to push the boundaries in scientific SWIR imaging with the launch of the Ninox 640 SU, a vacuum cooled to -80°C InGaAs camera, offering ultra-low dark current for longer exposure times up to 5 minutes. Combining a low read noise of <56e- in high gain and a dark current reading of <300e/p/s at -80°C, the Ninox Ultra is one of the most sensitive SWIR cameras available on the market and perfect for imaging weak signals using longer exposure times. It offers a resolution of 640×512 and has a 15µm x 15µm pixel pitch. The camera also offers a high intra-scene dynamic range of 56dB in high gain, enabling simultaneous capture of bright and dark portions of a scene. The Ninox 640 SU follows on from the launch of the Ninox 640 and Ninox 1280 cameras, which have attracted a lot of interest in applications including astronomy and in-vivo imaging.
