NMOS linear image sensor


Built-in thermoelectric cooler ensures long exposure time and stable operation.

The NMOS linear image sensor is a self-scanning photodiode array designed specifically as a detector for multichannel spectroscopy. The scanning circuit is made up of N-channel MOS transistors, operates at low power consumption and is easy to handle. The photodiode has a large active area, high UV sensitivity yet very low noise. The built-in thermoelectric cooler (air cooled) allows a long exposure time achieving a high S/N even at low light levels. The cap uses a sapphire glass window hermetically welded for high reliability.

-Wide active area
-High UV sensitivity with good stability
-Low dark current and high saturation charge allow a long integration time and a wide dynamic range at room temperature
-Excellent output linearity and sensitivity spatial uniformity
-Start pulse and clock pulses are CMOS logic compatible
-Built-in air-cooled thermoelectric cooler (setting temperature: 0 ℃)
