Best value upgrade to single photon sensitivity and extreme high shutter speed
For researchers who dedicate time to science rather than instrument set-up. Cricket™² offers plug and play intensified imaging or single photon imaging functionality. Recognized for best value, Cricket™² sets an unmatched standard for connectivity with scientific microscopes and cameras. Easy to use and adaptable for future requirements due to the wide choice of Hi-QE™ photocathodes and gating options. All made by Photonis, the global leader in Image Intensifier Technology.
Configuring the right Image Intensifier Tube for your Cricket™²
In order to configure the right Cricket™2 Image Intensifier Tube matching your application, please consider the following key Image Intensifier parts:
Select a photocathode matching the spectral region of interest of the phenomena you want observe. Choose a Photonis SolarBlind, Broadband or Hi-QE photocathodes, and make your camera sensitive in the UV, VIS or NIR (120-900nm).
The single MCP setup with Hi-CE technology ensures a resolution of up to 64 lp/mm and a collection efficiency exceeding 90%. Choose the high dynamic range MCP option for high linearity.
For time resolved imaging the photocathode can be used as an electro-optical shutter. Choose between the normal gating or fast gating option. A gate unit is integrated in the Cricket™2. Repetition rate up to 300 kHz and 2.5 MHz in burst mode.
Depending on imaging speed, choose the P43 phosphor for high efficiency and frame rates up to 1000 frames per second or the P46 phosphor for up to 4000 frames per second.
