Bidimensional detectors

Organizational Unit

A wide series of two-dimensional detectors of general purpose are available in the Optics Laboratory for taking images in the visible and near-infrared ranges of the spectrum. Among others, there are several SBIG, Xenics and Imaging Spectra cameras, which cover altogether from 400 to 1700 nm with different pixel formats.
