EM standard image sensors
EM (Electron Multiplication) is a technology that uses on-chip gain in the charge domain to effectively eliminate read noise from an image sensor. This enables advanced ultra-low light applications that require extreme sensitivity at fast frame rates. Examples include life science applications such as single molecule detection, super resolution microscopy and spinning disk confocal microscopy along with physical science applications such as nanotechnology imaging, Bose Einstein condensates and soft X-ray spectroscopy, and astronomy applications such as adaptive optics and lucky imaging. The inclusion of an additional conventional output allows further flexibility for applications such as true 24 hour surveillance.
Teledyne e2v EM image sensors are available in a wide range of configurations and can be tailored to the specific needs of the customer. The combination of Teledyne e2v’s back-thinning technology and anti-reflection coatings enables industry leading quantum efficiency that can be optimised for applications in the visible, UV or NIR wavelength ranges. These sensors are also available with shielded anti-blooming, which maintains full well capacity and high quantum efficiency whilst minimising blooming from strong light sources, accompanied by, hermetic packages with thermoelectric coolers to minimise dark signal.
