ProEM®-HS:1024BX3 - Princeton Instruments

ProEM ®-HS:1024BX3
The ProEM-HS: 1024BX3 is the most advanced EMCCD camera on the market utilizing the latest low-noise readout electronics and a
1024 x 1024 EMCCD. This camera delivers single photon sensitivity and the best fringe suppression with patented eXcelon3 technology.
This true 2-in-1 camera features 30 MHz readout speed with the EM gain mode to deliver 25 fps, a slow scan normal CCD readout mode
with very low read noise for precision photometry applications, as well as other advanced features including solid baseline stability and
linear EM gain control. The ultra-fast custom CCD readout mode is specially designed to deliver greater than 4,400 fps with reduced
ROI, whereas the special spectra kinetics mode delivers > 300,000 spectra / sec. The ProEM-HS:1024BX3 camera is cooled to below
-65°C, and the all-metal, hermetic vacuum seals have a lifetime warranty – the only such guarantee in the industry. For the first time, this
camera also features the latest Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) interface allowing remote operation over a single cable, without the need for
custom frame grabbers. High QE and ultra-low-noise electronics make the ProEM-HS: 1024BX3 camera ideal for demanding, low-light
level applications such as astronomy and Bose-Einstein Condensate (BEC) imaging.

Experimental conditions:
Atomic emission lines were acquired using the
Princeton Instruments IsoPlane-320 imaging
spectrograph with 10 µm wide slits and a
1200 gr/mm grating.
The ProEM-HS:1KBX3-10µm camera features 10x10µm pixels for improved spatial and spectral resolution. For
spectroscopic applications, the IsoPlane-320 is the only spectrograph that can take full advantage of 10μm
pixel resolution due to totally aberration-free design. The graph above shows a comparison of spectra taken
with 13x13µm pixels vs. smaller pixels in the ProEM-HS:1KBX3-10µm camera. With 10µm pixel camera, the
IsoPlane-320 achieved a 23% improvement in spectral resolution. The ProEM-HS:1KBX3-10µm and IsoPlane
spectrographs are ideal for microspectroscopy applications.
