VUV EUV X-Ray In-Vacuum Large Format Camera

The VUV EUV X-Ray In-Vacuum Large Format Camera has a resolution of 2048 x 2048 pixels and there are four models available with different sensor formats.


Based on a unique platform concept, greateyes offers a scientific VUV EUV X-Ray In-Vacuum Large Format camera range for imaging and spectroscopy in the VUV, EUV, soft and hard X-ray range up to 20 keV. Fabrication of the cameras in stainless steel or aluminium provides excellent vacuum compatibility. A single additional flange integrates electrical and water cooling feedthroughs. The CCD sensor directly detects incoming photons. No external controller is required to operate the detectors.

All greateyes cameras combine scientific CCD sensors with ultra-low noise electronics for optimal detection of weak signals. Select among different spectral sensitivities and sensor technologies to find the best solution for your imaging or spectroscopic application. The full-frame in-vacuum CCD cameras are cooled by multi-stage Peltier elements. The cameras provide a rich set of functionalities including flexible binning operation, various trigger and synchronization modes, software switchable gain as well as temperature monitoring of the CCD sensor and the Peltier hot side.
