PI-MTE3

Designed for direct detection in VUV, EUV and X-ray imaging, the PI-MTE3 in-vacuum CCD cameras are engineered to encompass the energy range ~10 eV to 30 keV. These back-illuminated CCDs within the PI-MTE3 deliver >95% peak quantum efficiency, with efficient liquid cooling offering low dark current, facilitating long exposure times. The four part readout architecture offers 7-10x higher frame rates than previous generation two port cameras.

Key Capabilities

X-Ray Energy Sensitivity

With sensitivity in the X-ray energy range from 10 eV to 30 keV, the PI-MTE3 is well suited for a wide variety of soft x-ray spectroscopy and imaging applications, such as X-ray microscopy, X-ray plasma diagnostics and EUV lithography.

Large Format Sensors

The PI-MTE3 is equipped with large-format, back-illuminated sensors with a 2048 x 2048 or 4096 x 4096 resolution CCD sensor options. Both sensors cover the 10 eV to 30 keV range, with a peak quantum efficiency of >95%, owing to the high sensitivity of the PI-MTE3.

Highest Frame Rates

With approximately 3 full fps at 2k x 2k resolution, the PI-MTE3 offers up to 7 – 10x higher resolution than previous generations. Through efficient dissipation of heat from the electronics, due to valuable thermal design, continuous operation of the PI-MTE3 can be achieved without the need to shut down the camera periodically.

Customizable Performance

Flexible multiple-readout-port design allows the PI-MTE3 to capture even ultrafast events. With 4-port, 2-port or 1-port readout options, both custom sensor readout and kinetic readout can be achieved. The PI-MTE3 delivers 3.2 fps at 16 MHz, with complete triggering support and independent optimization clocking for each port combination.
