Thorlabs Quantalux sCMOS Camera
Thorlabs has announced the release of its 2.1 MP Quantalux sCMOS Camera, based on a high‐performance 1 e‐ read‐noise imager. Suitable for demanding imaging applications, the monochrome sensor can image the full frame (1920 x 1080) at 50 fps with 16-bit resolution and offers a peak quantum efficiency of 61% at 600 nm.
Packaged in a housing that measures 2.38″ x 2.78″, the 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 company’s goal in introducing the camera was to provide researchers and OEMs with a product for achieving low-light images without compromising on key specifications. In addition to the high performance, users can benefit from the ease of integration with a comprehensive software suite that includes ThorCam — Thorlabs’ Windows GUI — as well as support for third-party applications such as ImageJ/Micromanager, LabVIEW, MatLab and the company’s developer-friendly SDK.
The compact housing of the camera is feature rich, enabling seamless integration into a multitude of set-ups. An adjustable C-Mount adapter is factory installed into the SM1-threaded optical aperture of the camera for out-of-the-box compatibility with industry-standard microscopes and camera lenses. Various mounting taps are also provided for optical post and 30 mm cage system compatibility.
Suitable applications include fluorescence microscopy, VIS/NIR imaging, multispectral imaging and low-light inspection.
