Custom Solutions and Standard Products
XCAM has developed and built many challenging custom systems for science over the years; this has given us the opportunity to develop a series of standard components which can be used to enable the customer to build a custom system from a series of standard elements, or we can use our accumulated know-how and expertise to develop a custom system specifically for your application.
Our specific expertise is in:
We have built cameras primarily using e2v technologies CCDs, but have also used Atmel (formerly Thompson and now part of e2v technologies) and Kodak CCDs. We are happy to offer systems constructed around any manufacturer’s CCDs.
Some examples of custom XCAM CCD camera systems and their applications are presented below,
along with some information about other custom headboards and CCD packaging designs we have produced.
For additional information, please contact us for a detailed
discussion of your requirements.
SCD Detectors |
XCAM has produced cameras based on e2v technologies new range of SCDs (swept charge devices) for X-ray spectroscopy.
Ultra-fast, Multiple-windowed Spectroscopy |
XCAM has developed a camera system for high frame rate multi-fibre optical spectroscopy. In this system, up to 16 user-selectable windows are defined on the CCD image and sampled, providing up to 3200 spectra per second.
Example of a Masked CCD Operating in an Unusual Mode|
The CCD is required to detect a tiny amount of exponentially-decaying light, and to operate in a mode which permits the decay constant to be determined. The resulting spectrum temporal resolution is around 2 microseconds.
