Low Light Imaging Expertise UltraVac™ Sealed Vacuum Technology The ability to operate the detector at very low temperatures is essential in achieving the highest sensitivity of the detector system. To cool the sensor it must be operated in a vacuum. To efficiently cool it, the sensor should be the coldest component in the camera. All-Metal Seal Mission Statement “To become the Global Leader in Pioneering & Manufacturing High Performance Light Measuring Solutions ” Andor Technology’s mission is to However, this means if the sensor is not housed in a very good vacuum it becomes the surface of...

Low Light Imaging Applications Super Resolution Microscopy Light microscopy has always been suffering from the limit imposed by the Abbe’s law which manifested itself as presence of Airy disks. These structures defined the resolution of any optical systems regardless of imaging modality. Until recently, the Abbe limit seemed to be the ultimate barrier in optical resolution therefore all images obtained from high performance light microscopes were irrevocably diffraction-limited. All finer structures in low sub-micrometre space were impossible to render without major distortions. To address...
