HORIBA Scientific, global leader in Raman and Fluorescence spectroscopy systems, launched their new Syncerity back-illuminated, deep-cooled CCD camera with an NIR-enhanced 2048x70 sensor. This CCD sensor is designed for companies requiring an affordable OEM camera for VIS-NIR spectroscopy applications. This new Syncerity camera joins the existing Syncerity with front illuminated 1024 x 256 CCD sensor for UV-VIS-NIR applications.
Its high resolution 14µm pixel size makes it ideal for Raman instrumentation. Syncerity NIR offers ultra low etaloning and more than 40% Quantum Efficiency at 1000nm. Peak QE of 84% at 700nm, and 20% at 1050nm means the Syncerity back-illuminated NIR offers a broad response. It is also available in a back-illuminated UV-VIS optimized configuration.
Its lifetime vacuum warranty and compact size make it ideal for OEM integration, particularly in Raman microscopes, and its flexible design allows the OEM-dedicated HORIBA team to quickly adapt the camera for industrial applications.
HORIBA Scientific addressed the need for improved performance from CCDs available for OEM. The Syncerity is a research grade spectroscopy camera that combines affordability, performance and versatility for OEM, as well as research applications. Ruggedized connectors ensure overall system integrity in industrial environments, and its all metal sealed technology provides a permanent vacuum which comes with a lifetime maintenance-free warranty.
"The Syncerity BI-NIR CCD Detector is the perfect choice for Raman applications," said Nicolas Vezard, Vice President - OEM Spectrometers Division, HORIBA Scientific. "Complementing our other lines of deep cooled, high performing spectroscopic CCD cameras, this CCD marries price and performance, particularly in applications and markets that are price sensitive.”
