The Ultimate in Precision and Intelligence Ultimate in Precision | SuperHV ...the spatial resolution of the intensifier is proportional to the square root of the gate voltage between the photocathode and the MCP Repetition Rate, kHz (Continuous) One of the key benefits of using ICCD cameras for timeresolved measurements is their gating ability, that is, their ability to open and close at the precise time necessary to capture a phenomenon of interest. They can freeze the action. For example, in fluorescence lifetime imaging measurements, the camera is synchronized by gating the ICCD at...
