C-RED ONE

A UNIQUE ULTRA LOW LIGHT HIGH SPEED SCIENTIFIC CAMERA FOR SWIR IMAGING

 


The project leading to this application has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 673944

THEORY OF OPERATION

The discovery of electron initiated avalanche photodiodes (e-APD) using mercury cadmium telluride (MCT) semiconductor materials permitted a significant breakthrough in SWIR imaging.

C-RED One is using a unique 320 x 256 pixels HgCdTe e-APD array with 24 μm pixel pitch. The sensor allows sub-electron readout noise, taking advantage of the e-APD noise free multiplication gain and non-destructive readout ability.

C-RED One is also capable of multiple regions of interest (ROI) readout allowing faster image rate (10’s of KHz) while maintaining unprecedented sub-electron readout noise.

The sensor is cooled down to cryogenic temperature (80 K) using an integrated pulse tube with a high reliability.

C-RED One is opening a new era in terms of sensitivity and speed in the SWIR scientific cameras domain.
