Princeton Instruments Cascade system received the Circle of Excellence Award at Photonics West 2003 as the world's first scientific grade EMCCD camera to boost signal directly on the CCD using on-chip multiplication gain.
It is available in two designs. The Cascade 128+ achieves unprecedented 510 full frames-per-second (>4,000 frames/sec with reduced ROI) for ultra-fast imaging. Coupled with an advanced circular buffers feature for real-time frame access and a back-illuminated CCD with on-chip multiplication gain for ultra-low light sensitivity, Cascade 128+ deliverys unmatched performance for high-speed, low-light imaging applications.
The Cascade 1K is the newest addition to the Cascade family, and features a megapixel sensor which delivers the highest resolution available from an EMCCD camera. Based on advanced virtual phase technology, this camera achieves sensitivity higher than typicaly front-illuminated cameras from UV to NIR.
