Low-Light Imaging

Features

Gated image intensifier
The TRiCAM is equipped with an integrated timing pulse generator and a gate-unit, generating gate pulses down to < 3 ns.

Low-light imaging
The TRiCAM has a built-in image intensifier that boosts the incoming light. This way, you can capture detailed images in the most challenging light conditions.

Fiber-optically coupled
Our experienced engineers couple the sensor to the image intensifier with a fiber-optic plate, resulting in a 10 – 20x more light efficient system. The fiber-optic plate is a solid piece of glass that consists of millions of parallel glass fibers sealed together. Each fiber acts as an independent light conductor that transfers the light from the image intensifier to the sensor.

Ultra-short gating
The image intensifier in the TRiCAM can be used as an ultra-fast electronic shutter. This technique is called gating and it can be done in a matter of nanoseconds.

Gating can eliminate motion blur when imaging fast-moving objects or highly dynamic processes. By varying the timing of the gate signal very precisely (tens of picosecond resolution), you can use gating to record a time-resolved light intensity profile.

Optimised for your application
The TRiCAM can be configured with a wide range of image intensifiers. Available image intensifiers cover the entire visual spectrum and the near infrared.

High-resolution sensor
The TRiCAM features a high-resolution CMOS sensor. It captures stunningly detailed images at 1920 x 1200 pixels.

160 fps
At up to 160 fps, the TRiCAM can record slow-motion footage, even in low-light conditions.

Global shutter
With its global shutter readout method, the sensor in the TRiCAM eliminates rolling shutter effects in your images.

    COMPACT

    and possibility to request for custom firmware

    EFFICIENCY

    Computer controlled by USB connection

    SIMPLICITY

    Seamlessly integrates with Lambert Instruments’ intensifier attachments

    Description

    For integration into a larger system or for automated measurements, the gain control unit for automated systems lets you control the settings of the intensifier attachment. The control unit uses standard TTL and analog signals for communication, allowing the user to switch the intensifier on or off, alter the gain and the anode current limit of the image intensifier without the need of software integration.

     

    Applications

    Time resolved imaging

    Rapid Gate switching to improve dynamic range

    To be used with Lambert Instruments’ Intensifier Attachments.

    Features

    Image Intensifier Gain
    By increasing the image intensifier gain, the incoming light intensity will be boosted more, resulting in a brighter image. The intensifier control for automated systems lets you control the gain of the image intensifier.

    Anode Current Limit
    To protect the fragile image intensifier from being damaged by overexposure, the anode current limiter can be used to set a limit for the acceptable anode current. If the anode current exceeds this value, then the image intensifier will be switched to a safe mode.

    Compatibility
    The gain control unit for automated systems is compatible with our intensifier attachments: HiCATT and TRiCATT

    Specifications

    A synchronisation signal is needed in order to create an output at the three outputs of the intensifier gate control. This signal can originate from different sources:

    External source: For instance a signal from a frame grabber or a connected camera.

    Software command

    Internal sync source: Gives synchronisation pulses with a fixed frequency. Can generate pulses at frequencies between 0.5 Hz and 4 MHz.

    When using an external synchronisation source, the following modes are available:

    – Synchronise with rising edge of external input pulse

    – Synchronise with falling edge of external input pulse

            Control Units

            The control unit contains a micro-controller, a high voltage power supply and a RF (Radio Frequency) amplifier. The control unit has a low voltage input to receive the external modulation signal. It amplifies this signal and biases it with a variable DC photocathode voltage. The control unit offers control of the MCP voltage for setting the image intensifier gain. The control unit also monitors the light output, and switches off the image intensifier when its light output becomes too high. The control unit supports modulation frequencies up to 120 MHz.

            Options

            Optional: Signal Generator
            Instead of using an external modulation signal generator, we offer a built-in modulation signal generator as part of the control unit/power supply for frequencies up to 120 MHz.

            Optional: TRiCAM
            As an alternative to the lens-coupled ICCD camera (TRiCATT + CCD), we offer an ICCD camera in which the image intensifier is fiber-optically coupled to the sensor. This is the TRiCAM. This modulated intensified CCD camera is very compact and has a significantly higher gain than the lens-coupled combination as a result of the more efficient and compact fiber coupling.

              Description

              The HiCAM is a gated intensified high-speed high-sensitivity imaging camera. It has an integrated fiber-optically coupled image intensifier, which offers a unique combination of high speed and sensitivity down to single photon level. Because the HiCAM does not need high intensity light sources, it is suitable for use in low-light level conditions.

              Applications

              Super-slow motion combustion research for the automotive industry

              Time-resolved imaging in plasma physics research

              Dynamic phenomena in microscopy, e.g. Imaging the rotation of single molecules of ATPase

              Laser-Induced Fluorescence (LIF)

              Flow visualization and velocity measurements using Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV)

              Time-resolved imaging of fluids for microfluidic research

              Blood flow analysis

              Time-resolved fluorescence

              Features

              Ultra-short Gating
              The camera’s effective exposure time can be reduced to < 3 ns (FWHM) for time resolved imaging, or capturing very fast events.

              Fast Streaming
              To transfer all the high-resolution image data, the HiCAM streams live over a CoaXPress (CXP) interface. The camera has four CXP connectors, each of which has a channel speed of 6.25 Gbit/s.

              Longterm Streaming
              The recordings can be directly streamed to the hard drive. For optimised recorders the length is limited only by drive capacity.

              High-sensitivity Intensifiers
              You can choose from a wide variety of high-sensitivity image intensifiers to match the spectral needs of your application.

              Cycled Bursts
              Adjust for changing light levels by cycling through three different gate widths and optionally combine this with the burst mode to optimize the dynamic range.

              Fiber-optically Coupled
              Our experienced engineers couple the sensor to the image intensifier with a fiber-optic window.

              Fluorescence Imaging

              Image Intensifiers 

              An image intensifier boosts the intensity of the incoming light. By converting photons to electrons and back to photons, the light intensity can be increased significantly. Scroll down for more information about how this works.

              Another feature of an image intensifier is that it can act as an ultra-fast shutter. The photocathode can be switched between on and off in a matter of nanoseconds.

              Fluorescence Imaging

              Photocathodes 

              The photocathode is the entrance of the image intensifier. This is where the incoming photons are converted to electrons. The quantum efficiency of the photocathode material specifies how efficient this conversion is for each wavelength.

                  Ultra-Short Gating
                  With its gated image intensifier, the camera’s effective exposure time can be reduced. The minimum gate width of 10 ns (FWHM) increases the range of light levels at which the camera can be used. It also eliminates motion blur and enables time-resolved filtering.

                  Cooled Image Intensifier 
                  The fanless design of the camera minimises vibrations to ensure sharp images. Very low noise levels are achieved by Peltier cooling the image intensifier. Noise levels are reduced by a factor of up to 100 times as compared to uncooled intensified cameras.
