NIRvana SWIR InGaAs Cameras
NIR / SWIR Cameras Designed by Scientists, for Scientists!
The NIRvana® family of focal plane array (FPA) cameras includes the NIRvana, NIRvana ST, and NIRvana LN, which are the only scientific-grade InGaAs cameras on the market specifically designed for quantitative near-infrared (NIR) / shortwave-infrared (SWIR) imaging and spectroscopy applications.
New! Improved NIRvana:640 Performance – View that datasheet for details!
Princeton Instruments’ many decades of experience designing ultra-low-noise cameras for scientific and R&D applications have led to the following salient NIRvana features:
- InGaAs 640 x 512 focal plane array, 20 µm/pixel sensor
- Sensitive in 0.9 µm to 1.7 µm wavelength range
- Thermoelectrically cooled version achieves -85ºC using Princeton Instruments’ unique vacuum technology; LN version for cryogenic operating temperatures reduce dark noise even further
- High-speed imaging up to 110 fps
- High-speed GigE interface
- Flexible mounting design for imaging and spectroscopy
- Powerful 64-bit LightField software
Small Animal Imaging
For small-animal imaging in the NIR II / SWIR range, Princeton Instruments recommends the NIRvana:640 camera. We designed this 16-bit camera specifically for scientific research applications that require superb linearity and excellent near-infrared sensitivity.
Astronomical imaging can be broadly divided into two categories: (1) steady-state imaging, in which long exposures are required to capture ultra-low-light-level objects, and (2) time-resolved photometry, in which integration times range from milliseconds to a few seconds.
Singlet Oxygen Imaging
Singlet oxygen, the first excited state of molecular oxygen, is a highly reactive species that plays an important role in a wide range of biological processes, including cell signaling, immune response, macromolecule degradation, and elimination of neoplastic tissue during photodynamic therapy.
Nanotechnology helps scientists and engineers create faster electronics as well as ultrastrong and extremely light structural materials.
