VUV EUV X-Ray Large Format Camera

The VUV EUV X-Ray 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 portfolio of scientific cameras with vacuum interface for imaging and spectroscopy in the VUV, EUV, soft and hard X-ray range. Incoming photons are directly detected by the CCD sensor. Beside the precise measurement of high energy radiation, the detectors exhibit a high sensitivity in the ranges NIR, VIS and UV as well.

All greateyes cameras combine scientific CCD sensors with ultra-low noise electronics for optimal detection of weak signals. Select among different spectral sensitivities and flange types to find the best solution for your imaging or spectroscopic application. The full frame CCD sensors 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 sensor and the Peltier hot side.
