This series of highly sensitive, cooled cameras with vacuum flange is equipped with ultra-low noise 18-bit readout electronics and perfectly suited for imaging applications in the VUV, EUV and X-ray range up to 20 keV. The CCD detectors deliver spectra and images with outstanding dynamic range. To find the best solution for your application, greateyes offers various flange types and sensor technologies with quantum efficiencies up to 98%. Beside the precise measurement of high energy radiation, the detectors exhibit a high sensitivity in the ranges NIR, VIS and UV as well.

All greateyes ALEX-i cameras combine scientific CCD sensors with ultra-low noise electronics for optimal detection of weak signals. The full frame CCD sensors are cooled by multi-stage Peltier elements. The ALEX-i low noise CCD cameras provide a rich set of functionalities including flexible binning operation, various trigger and synchronization modes, software switchable gain as well as temperature monitoring of the sensor and the Peltier hot side.
