The new Andor iXon Ultra 888 megapixel, back-illuminated EMCCD camera offers single photon sensitivity across a large field of view, at 26 fps. It represents a massive performance boost for the largest available EMCCD sensor, as well as the first USB 3.0 enabled EMCCD camera. With a 1024 x 1024 sensor format and 13 μm pixel size, the resolving power, field of view and unparalleled speed of the iXon Ultra 888 render it the most attractive and versatile EMCCD camera for demanding applications. It has been re-engineered to facilitate a 3x acceleration of the pixel readout speed to an unprecedented 30MHz, whilst maintaining quantitative stability, propelling the full frame performance to video rate.

The iXon Ultra 888 is designed to be the most flexible, easy to use EMCCD on the market, optimisable for a variety of application requirements in a single click via the OptAcquire™ feature. Furthermore, signal can be quantitatively calibrated in units of electrons or photons, either in real time or post-processing.
