Based on the world’s first quantitative CMOS camera

27 Mar 2024

The new ORCA®-Quest 2: Performance perfected to surpass its predecessor, the world's first quantitative CMOS camera (qCMOS). Extreme low-noise performance at video rate speeds, enhanced UV quantum efficiency, high-resolution image, and photon number resolving output. It's the ultimate choice for rapid data acquisition in demanding applications.

Building upon the success of its predecessor, the ORCA-Quest, the world's first quantitative CMOS camera (qCMOS), this new version offers exceptional performance and versatility. Designed to meet the evolving needs of researchers in physics and life sciences, as well as innovative startups and established imaging solution providers, particularly in microscopy and quantum computing, the ORCA-Quest 2 includes the following key features:

         ORCA-Quest 2- C15550-22UP

  • Extreme low-noise performance at video rate speeds: With a remarkable 0.30 electrons rms and an elevated speed of 25 fps at full resolution (9.4MP), researchers can capture clear, high-quality images even in extreme low-light conditions.
  • Enhanced UV quantum efficiency: Compared to its predecessor, the quantum efficiency in the UV has been greatly improved – up to 50% @300nm.
  • High-resolution imaging: Features a back-illuminated sensor structure and trench structure in one-by-one pixels for reduced crosstalk, for exceptional resolution and image clarity.
  • Photon number resolving output: The new model remains the only CMOS camera on the market that enables precise quantification of photoelectrons.

Moreover, compared to EM-CCD cameras, it offers higher data rates and lower latency, making it the preferred choice for demanding applications that require rapid data acquisition.

Applications include:

  • Ion and atom imaging for quantum technologies
  • Quantum imaging / single photon imaging
  • Super-resolution microscopy
  • Bioluminescence imaging
  • Spinning disk confocal microscopy
