New CMOS Linear Image Sensor

Apr 02 2015 Read 2368 Times

Hamamatsu Photonics (UK) introduces a new CMOS linear image sensor designed specifically for spectrometry applications; the S10121 to S10124 series.

Each pixel on the sensor acts as a self-containing photodiode offering variable integration time, so the integration time is shortened if the pixel is bright and lengthened if it’s dim. Along with a large saturation output charge on each pixel, using this function to lengthen the integration time of certain pixels makes it possible to effectively detect weak spectral signals. This is very useful in spectroscopy applications where light levels vary across the sample spectrum.

The series offers much smoother response in the UV region than conventional CMOS detectors whilst still offering high UV sensitivity. In addition to the new features above, wide dynamic range and excellent linearity continue to be achieved, thus making the S10121 to S10124 series an ideal solution for spectroscopy applications.
