Andor iKon-M 912

Andor’s back-illuminated iKon M 912 camera offers the ultimate in dynamic range and photon sensitivity, by virtue of a large 24 μm, high well depth pixel architecture. The camera also offers a QEmax of 95% and exceptionally low readout noise.

The iKon-M 912 benefits from negligible dark current with industry-leading thermoelectric cooling down to -100°C, enabling use of significantly longer exposure times than offered by any other camera on the market using this same sensor. The iKon-M platform offers Multi-Megahertz readout for more rapid acquisition or fast focusing, along with direct USB 2.0 connectivity to PC.

  • 300,000 e- well depth
  • TE cooling to -100°C
  • QE max > 90 °C from back-illuminated sensor
  • Ultra low noise readout
  • Multi-Megahertz pixel readout
  • UltraVac™
  • 24 µm pixels – The large 24 µm pixels are designed with maximum well and photon collection area in mind.
  • Unparalleled thermoelectric (TE) cooling performance – Negligible dark current, without the aggravation or safety concerns associated with LN2. Market-exclusive TE cooling specs of -100°C with 10°C water chiller/recirculator available from Andor); -80°C with air-cooling via integrated low-noise fan.
  • Up to 95% QE – Back-illuminated sensors available for maximum photon capture and higher S/N ratio.
  • UltraVac™ – Proprietary and proven vacuum process, critical for sustained vacuum integrity, sensor protection and unequalled cooling, year after year.
  • Ultra low-noise readout – Down to 2.5 electrons rms with intelligent low-noise electronics, offering the most “silent” system noise performance available.
  • Software selectable readout speeds (up to 5 MHz) – Faster readout for focusing and following dynamic events, slower readout for absolute minimal noise performance.
  • High quantitative dynamic range – 16-bit scientific grade A/D, quantifying both strong and very weak signals in a single frame.
  • Single window design – Maximum photon throughput.
  • Software selectable pre-amp sensitivity – User configurable system optimization.
  • External trigger – TTL input and output for synchronization to experimental events.
