Scientific

Teledyne e2v has been enabling scientific discoveries for over 30 years though its imaging and high power radio frequency solutions covering a plethora of disciplines from high energy physics to life sciences through to astronomy.

Imaging Solutions

Our backside illuminated (BSI) and backthinned Charge Coupled Devices (CCDs) and front and back illuminated CMOS image sensors (CIS) are seen as the gold standard for scientific and quantum imaging in applications in spectroscopy, microscopy, IN VIVO, x-ray and astronomy.

Teledyne e2v CCD image sensor technology plays a key role in COVID-19 diagnostics through camera systems designed for microscopy research and diagnosis of novel coronavirus and other diseases.

Ground and Space Astronomy​

Teledyne e2v manufactures focal planes, complete turn key camera systems and is world renowned for its sensors for mosaic imaging cameras, spectroscopy, auto-guiding, acquisition, and adaptive optics.

Our backside illuminated (BSI) and back-thinned Charge Coupled Detectors (CCDs) have extensive heritage and a wide variety of formats and customized features.

Our CMOS Image Sensors (CIS) offer similar performance to CCDs but can offer higher frame rates and integrated digital functions, including digital data output.

High Energy Physics

For more than 50 years we have been present in the global High Energy Physics (HEP) scientific market and supply imaging and high power radio frequency solutions for use in particle beam accelerators and research laser facilities around the world.

Teledyne e2v’s imaging sensors are used to detect the x-rays scattered by the scientific samples in X-ray Free-Electron Laser (XFEL) beams. From these scattered x-rays scientists can see the atomic structure of proteins and other nano-scale structures. Leveraging our experience of radiation effects in the context of space applications on image sensor devices we have developed radiation hard image sensors for use in photon science.

Our thyratrons and solid state switched compact modulators are used across a range of demanding fast switching applications, including:

  • Scientific LINACs - As the driver for high power klystrons and used to accelerate particle beams
  • High power klystrons used to accelerate particle beams
  • Crowbar thyratrons used as protection devices for high power RF tubes at operating voltages of up to 160 kV
  • Kicker magnets where thyratrons are used in fast-switched magnets which eject particles from their circular orbits in high energy physics machines
