October 10, 2017 – Thorlabs has announced the release of its 2.1 Megapixel Quantalux sCMOS Camera based on a 1e‚Äê read‚Äênoise imager. Designed for demanding imaging applications, the monochrome sensor can image the full frame [1920 (H) x 1080 (V)] at 50 fps with 16 Bit resolution and offers a peak quantum efficiency of 61% at 600 nm. Packaged in a housing that measures just 2.38” (at its widest point) x 2.78”, the sCMOS camera is equipped with passive thermal management for the sensor, reducing dark current without the need for a cooling fan or thermoelectric cooler. A USB 3.0 interface provides compatibility with most computers.
The housing of the Quantalux sCMOS camera enables integration into a multitude of setups. An adjustable C‚ÄêMount (1.000"‚Äê32) adapter is factory installed into the SM1‚Äêthreaded (1.035”‚Äê40) optical aperture of the camera for out‚Äêof the‚Äêbox compatibility with industry‚Äêstandard microscopes and camera lenses. Various mounting taps are also provided for optical post and 30 mm cage system compatibility.
Suggested applications include fluorescence microscopy, VIS/NIR imaging, multispectral imaging, and low‚Äêlight inspection.
