Sydor Instruments Vacuum X-Ray CCD Camera

Sydor Instruments has introduced a new, compact x-ray digital camera capable of operating completely in vacuum. The camera utilizes a 16MP sensor with 9 micron pixels for the highest resolution in the most demanding scientific applications. With flexible binning and ROI readouts, the Sydor x-ray camera is capable of performing in many different applications such as plasma physics, deep UV lithography, x-ray microscopy, and x-ray spectroscopy. Unique features include thermo-electric cooling down to -10° C, fiber optic communication link for low noise operation, and sensitivity from x-ray/uv to optical wavelengths. A fully digital output with on-board A/D limits interference from external noise. The camera also has a 100% fill factor for maximum collection efficiency.

Power without Sacrifice:

With up to 16 kW of power, the new generation TruDisk lasers offer unprecedented performance with up to 30% wall plug efficiency in a dramatically reduced footprint. Real time power feedback control and a BPP of 2 to 8 mm-mrad guarantees high beam quality and reliable power. A unique modular design allows the laser to be serviced onsite without interrupting production. Insensitive to back reflections, materials such as copper or aluminum can be processed without risk of laser failure. With approximately 500 TruDisk lasers installed worldwide, disk laser technology continues to prove itself in industrial production environments.
