CCD Cameras for Spectroscopy - iDus Series

Andor's iDus 416 platform boasts a unique combination of very low dark noise and very high near infrared QE. This makes it the ideal detector for NIR Raman and photoluminescence, greatly reducing acquisition times and removing the need for inconvenient LN2 cooling.

The unique 2000 x 256, 15 μm pixel array allows extended, broadband and high resolution spectral acquisition, while the fringe suppression technology virtually eliminates the optical etalonning at the longer wavelengths.

With its compact form factor and USB 2.0 connectivity, the iDus 416 can be seamlessly integrated to Shamrock spectrographs and controlled from a laptop. Andor's UltraVac™ technology offers un-matched performance and reliability, maintaining superb performance year after year in both Research laboratory and industrial environments.


  • Low dark current - 10x better than Back-Illuminated Deep-Depletion NIMO sensors, best SNR in the NIR
  • Peak QE up to 95% @ 800 nm - Best detection capability in the NIR
  • 15 μm pixels and 30 mm wide sensor array - Ideal for simultaneous high resolution spectroscopy and extended simultaneous band-pass capture
  • TE cooling down to -95°C - Critical for elimination of dark current detection limit - no inconvenience associated with LN2
  • Ultravac™ technology - Critical for sustained vacuum integrity and to maintain unequalled cooling and QE performance year after year
  • Fringe suppression technology – as standard
  • USB 2.0 connection - Ideal for laptop operation
  • Compact and rugged platform - Ideal for OEM integration & laboratory setups
