Teledyne e2v image sensors & camera solutions enable the world’s astronomers to explore the Universe
Ground-based astronomy imaging
Teledyne e2v is the leading supplier of sensors for Space Science, Ground-based Astronomy, and Earth Observation applications with an impressive record of successful deliveries to a wide range of customers over 40 years. Most of Teledyne e2v’s ground-based astronomy sensors are capable of qualification for space use.
All Teledyne e2v devices can be supplied partially or fully customized to fit the application and achieve the best possible system performance. Sensor design, manufacture, assembly and test are carried out in-house. Sensors are back-illuminated for highest sensitivity, designed with very low noise, and available in multiple formats and package types. Teledyne e2v has capabilities and vast experience in designing and delivering integrated camera systems, mosaics, and focal planes.
Teledyne e2v manufactures sensors for mosaic imaging cameras, spectroscopy, auto-guiding, acquisition, and adaptive optics. Charge Coupled Detectors (CCDs) have extensive heritage and a wide variety of formats and customized features. CMOS Image Sensors (CIS) offer similar performance to CCDs but can offer higher frame rates and integrated digital functions, including digital data output.
Teledyne e2v offers a very wide range of astronomy sensors. The table below highlights popular astronomy sensors. A complete list of ground-based astronomy and space CCD image sensors can be found here.
