The relay optics of HiCATT and TRiCATT project the output of the image intensifier onto the sensor of a (high-speed) camera. Using this calculator you can determine the optimal configuration of image intensifer diameter and relay optics for your camera and application. If you plan to use the high-speed camera in a cropped mode (for higher speeds) you can enter the cropped resolution values to see the effect.
Select a high-speed camera from the list below or enter your sensor properties manually.
If you enter the sensor resolution and the pixel size, then the sensor size will be calculated when you press the button below.
The High-speed Intensified Camera Attachment (HiCATT) is designed for use with a high-speed camera. It increases the sensitivity of your camera and enables low-light imaging at frame rates up to 1 MHz (10 Mhz in burst)
The TRiCATT is a compact lens-coupled image intensifier for scientific and industrial applications that require: Low-light level imaging, Ultra-short exposures through fast gating, Frequency-domain imaging using lock-in detection
