QHY42 - 4 Megapixel Scientific COLDMOS camera


Status: in stock

The QHY42BSI is a cooled scientific CMOS camera with extremely low (1.3e-) read noise and a back-side illuminated CMOS sensor with 95% peak QE.  We also offer the QHY42 in a UV enhanced version as well as a front illuminated version.  The sensor array is 2048 x 2048 with relatively large 11um pixels and 89ke- full well capacity.  The QHY42 is capable of high frame rates up to 24FPS at full resolution.  Two stage TE cooling lowers the sensor temperature to -40C below ambient.  The QHY42 is ideally suited to scientific research, astronomy, biology, UV and low light imaging, and security.
