Andor Newton 920 spectroscopy CCD Camera

Both the Andor Newton EMCCD spectroscopy detectors and Newton conventional CCD spectroscopy detector systems have been optimized for high performance spectroscopic applications. The Newton EMCCD employs Andor’s pioneering electron multiplying CCD platform with exclusive sensor formats optimized for ultra-low light level spectroscopy applications.

Andor Newton 920 spectroscopy CCD Camera has ability to acquire over 1600 spectra per second, with -100°C cooling and the widest range of sensor options, makes the Newton spectroscopic CCD the highest performing spectroscopy CCD on the market.


  • Peak QE up to 95%
  • Extended range dual-AR option
  • TE cooling down to -100ºC
  • Ultravac™
  • Multi-Megahertz Readout

This high-end USB2.0 Newton CCD series brings together Andor’s ultra fast, lownoise electronics platform and market-leading deep thermo-electric cooling to -100°C, complemented by Andor’s Ultravac™ technology with its un-matched reliability track record in the scientific and industrial community.

Broadband detection rates of up to 1,600 spectra per second are enabled with intelligent Crop Mode operation. The Newton CCD is an ideal tool for ultrafast UV, VIS or NIR spectroscopy (or all the above with the Dual AR-coating BEX2-DD technology!), such as 2D chemical mapping, online process monitoring or non-invasive medical diagnosis.

The Newton 940 series offers 13.5 x 13.5 μm pixels for the highest UV to VIS resolution spectroscopy, while the 920 series and its 26 x 26 μm offers the highest dynamic range for UV to NIR applications. Both > 6.6 mm high sensors are ideally suited for multi-track spectroscopy or hyper-spectral imaging.

Peak QE up to 95% – Visible-optimized ‘BV/BVF’, infrared-optimized ‘BR-DD’ and broadband UV-NIR ‘BEX2-DD’ model

Fringe suppression technology as standard – Fringing greatly reduced (Deep-Depletion) or minimized (Back-Thinned ‘BVF’)

Extended range dual-AR option – Superior UV-NIR broadband QE

TE cooling to -100°C – Critical for elimination of dark current detection limit – no inconvenience associated with LN2

UltraVac™ – Critical for sustained vacuum integrity and to maintain unequalled cooling and QE performance, year-after-year

Multi-Megahertz Readout – High repetition rates achievable with low noise electronics

Crop Mode Operation – Up to 1,600 spectra per second rates

Single UV-grade fused silica window – Best UV-NIR throughput performance, specific AR coating and wedge options available

USB 2.0 Connection – Universal plug-and-play capability, ideal for laptop operation. Seamless operation alongside USB-based Shamrock spectrograph family

Down to 13.5 x 13.5 ?m pixels – Optimized pixel format for high resolution spectroscopy

Software-selectable pre-amplifier gain – Choice of best SNR performance of dynamic range at the touch of a button

Solis software for Spectroscopy – Comprehensive, user-friendly interface for simultaneous detector & spectrograph control

Software Development Kit (SDK) – Ease of control integration into complex setups: Matlab, Labview, Visual Basic or C/C++
