New sensor with extremely low readout noise !

Hello there ! Long time no see !

Here is the new thing :

https://www.gigajot.tech/qis
https://www.gigajot.tech/qis-cdk

The main interest is the readout noise, at 0.27e- RMS ; this is unheard of and would be extremely good for lucky imaging applications. ( Planetary imaging and DSO imaging as well )
Quantum efficiency seems good, pixel size is small but still alright, and 4mp definition is fine with square format.
The sensor is available in monochrome as well.

No idea about the price range however... certainly not cheap, but maybe affordable given the small sensor size ?

Hi Qiu, ;)
Hi all,

As Romain I'm interested by this new possible source of sensors, especially the GJ00422.
Seems very impressive on the paper.
Of course, lot of questions :
Is it affordable for amateurs ?
Is it easy to integrate ?
Will the read noise value be reached in "real-life" ?
What are the hidden drawbacks of these sensors ?

Best.

Single Photon detector! , That's great news.  Today I have get a conference with gigaJot people and we will push the camera on!

Best regards,

Great news ! Thanks Qiu !  :)

Could we expect a QHYCCD camera with this sensor ?
If yes, what will be a rough price for it ?
To know if amateurs could hope to buy one or if it remains reserved
to profesionnals as the new Hammatsu sensor/camera.

Many thanks!
Best.
