The University awarded a contract for DU-E888 back-illuminated EMCCD Camera to Andor Technology, South Windsor, CT, for $38,225.
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the
spatial resolution, sensitivity, speed, and noise specifications of this camera uniquely satisfy the department's experimental requirements. The Andor reaches very cold temperatures, which reduces thermal noise and it uses a technology that eliminates the outgassing from the sample under vacuum. This is unique to their system.
