Femto: 200MHz Wideband Variable Gain Voltage Amplifier

DHPVA 201 W R0

The Femto DHPVA voltage amplifier series has been revised, resulting in the new models DHPVA-101 (DC - 100 MHz) and DHPVA-201 (DC - 200 MHz). Input voltage drift and noise are improved to an extraordinary low level while still convincing with a constant bandwidth at any gain setting.

The voltage amplifiers of the DHPVA series are high precision amplifiers with unique features delivering an outstanding performance. The exceptional low input voltage drift of only 0.3 µV/°C and the low input noise of 2.3 nV/?Hz enable stable measurements with highest precision, even at maximum amplification. Flat frequency response without peaking was an important design requirement, which has been implemented excellently. Moreover, the amplifier bandwidth remains constant regardless of the chosen gain, thus permitting an accurate high-speed acquisition with preserving the signal shape independently of the gain setting.

Raptor Photonics launches the Falcon III with third generation EMCCD technology

 falcon III ok

Raptor Photonics, a global leader in the design and manufacture of high performance digital cameras, has launched its latest camera the Falcon III, using ground-breaking EMCCD – GEN III technology. New versions of the Falcon II and Kestrel which incorporate the new technology have also been added to the product line.

The Falcon III incorporates a new EMCCD sensor developed by e2v which offers 1MP resolution with 10µm square pixels. A back-illuminated sensor offers a peak QE of >95% offering unsurpassed sensitivity with a total noise floor as low as 0.01 electrons readout noise.

EMCCD – GEN III offers the combination of ultimate sensitivity and speed through a single output amplifier thereby maximizing uniformity. It is three times faster than previous generation EMCCDs with superior linearity and low gain performance. Up to 5000 x EM gain can be applied to the sensor using lower voltages resulting in reduced sensor ageing effects. The camera can be cooled to -100°C for lowest possible background events using Raptor’s long life ruggedized.
