EMCCD Image Sensors for Space and Ground-based Astronomy

L3CCD_0237461EM (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 such as adaptive optics and ‘lucky imaging’.

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.

Technical notes on the characteristics and operation of EM image sensors can be found below.
