XUV/EUV/VUV CCD Cameras

ALEX Series CCD Cameras for Spectroscopy and Imaging Applications

Based on a unique platform concept, the ALEX CCD product family 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.

All ALEX CCD 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.

ALEX-S CCD Camera Description

This series of highly sensitive, cooled cameras with vacuum flange is equipped with ultra-low noise 18-bit readout electronics and perfectly suited for spectroscopy applications in the VUV, EUV and X-ray range up to 20 keV. Due to the large pixel size, very high signal to noise ratios are possible. The CCD detectors deliver spectra and images with outstanding dynamic range. To find the best solution for your application, we offer various flange types and sensor technologies with quantum efficiencies up to 98%.

  • Up to 98% peak quantum efficiency
  • Ultra-deep cooling to -100 °C
  • Formats for the ALEX-I series include:
    • 1024 X 256 pixel format (26 um pixel size); Image Area: 26,6 mm × 6,7 mm
    • 2048 X 512 pixel format (13.5 um pixel size); Image Area: 27,6 mm × 6,9 mm
  • 18-bit dynamic range
  • Multi-MHz Readout
  • Max. full well capacity of 700 ke⁻
  • Scientific low-noise CCD sensors
