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.

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
