Image Sensors for Astronomic Applications

DALSA, a global leader in providing digital imaging technology displayed its new products at the recently concluded SPIE Photonics West conference at San Francisco, The products displayed included high speed CMOS cameras, a high sensitivity cooled camera suitable for imaging in astronomy, and X-ray sensors.

Also displayed were the high resolution/high speed CMOS cameras that use the global shutter technology, embedded analog-to-digital conversions, and digital control interface for simple configuration of sensors. The Argus is a TDI CCD digital X-ray sensor platform suitable for high resolution digital radiography applications. The camera offers a wide field of view ranging from 11 to 44cm and suitable for X-ray applications.

The cooled camera is suitable for sensitive, low noise scientific applications. The sensor in the camera is sealed and cooled to low temperatures that suit astronomy imaging. The CCD High Quantum Efficiency Sensors are highly sensitive to light.
