Date: November 14th, 2017

Nüvü Camēras is proud to have accomplished the CCCPs, a Space version of NüvüTM’s CCD Controller for Counting Photons. CCCPs is the first EMCCD controller designed for extreme faint flux imaging in space environment. CCCPs is scheduled to fly in September 2018 as the eye of the coronograph for the High-Contrast Imaging Balloon System project, led by University Laval with the contribution of several partners in the government and private industry.

Date: June 14th, 2017

Nüvü Camēras launches an Adaptive Optics (AO) option for its HNü 128 EMCCD camera, for exclusive robustness in a non-vacuum packaging, while maintaining superior SNR between 500 and 1000 fps in full frame with a 128×128 pixels detector. The new AO option requires less cooling for the lowest background signal, down to -60°C with a precision of ±0.01°C at maximum full frame readout of 20 MHz for a stabilized EM gain. Nüvü’s new feature is a more affordable EMCCD imaging solution that particularly answers adaptive optics requirements, among a wide range of other low light high-speed applications.

Nüvü Camēras is proud to present its latest exclusive feature: the passive heat dissipation of its electronics. The cooling feature dissipates emitted heat without the use of air, an essential requirement when air is absent from the environment or when access to air circulation is limited. The innovation spurred by space exploration, pioneers new developments in EMCCD cameras to benefit human lives through hospital centres’ systems. In order to revolutionize the imaging of exoplanets, asteroid research and space debris monitoring, a TRL-5 version of Nüvü’s EMCCD technology is already in the design phase thanks to Canadian Space Agency support.

With the contribution made by Yoann Gosselin, recent graduate in Biomedical Engineering at l’École Polytechnique de Montréal, brain cancer treatment is leaping forward. Taking advantage of Nüvü Camēras’ HNü unique performances, he significantly heightened the sensitivity of a technique used in the removal of cancerous cells in the brain, renowned as being the most effective to this day. Combined with radiotherapy and/or chemotherapy, this novel treatment will provide a better prognosis for brain cancer patients whose current life expectancy remains very limited.
