QHY990/991 is the scientific cooled short wavelength infrared camera. with Sony IMX990 / IMX991 InGaAs sensor with a square 5um*5um pixel array and 1.31M / 0.4mega effective pixels. This chip has a wide waveband(0.4um-1.7um) with high sensitivity. QE is up to 77% at 1200nm.
By using the Cu-Cu interconnect technology, the sensor has very low FPN noise and a low defect pixel ratio.
*Please contact QHYCCD about the price.
Both QHY990 and QHY991 include a 25mm filter holder. 25mm filter is a very common filter type for lab applications. The SWIR filter is easy to be installed inside the camera. With this adapter, the camera still meets the 17.5mm C-mount B.F.L.
QHY990 and QHY991 have both air cooling and liquid cooling version. The air cooling can get the -35C below ambient. The liquid cooling version can get -45C below ambient with normal temperature liquid and can get -60 to -80C below ambient with cold liquid. Typically the InGaAs sensor has a high dark current than Silicon-based material. If you are doing the long exposure with this camera (eg. exposure >5 sec) QHYCCD recommends selecting the liquid cooling version.
Applications: SWIR Astronomy Imaging and Photometry, Daytime Star Observing, Optical Communication, Laser, Optic Labs.
