Labrigger.com, the source for open solutions for biomedical research, whose goal is to “accelerate and enable research by reducing the duplication of effort by multiple labs”, devotes its last post to what researchers should look for prior to purchasing an EMCCD camera. Labrigger let Nüvü Camēras experts present an in-depth review of all the electronic noise sources and constraints that come into play when imaging in low-light conditions with an EMCCD camera. Take a look at the entire article here!
In the September issue of Space Quarterly, Sr. Satellite Engineer with Telesat and Chair of the Ottawa Chapter of the Canadian Space Society Ryan Anderson brings Nüvü Camēras into the limelight. From the ability to simply produce less noise to control EMCCDs, Nüvü Camēras avoids the use of noise filtering algorithms that may eliminate valuable data in addition to noise. Mentioning some of Nüvü Camēras’ most recognized customers including NASA for future applications in space, the article features VP and CTO Olivier Daigle. He provides insights on how the determination for state of the art instrumentation in astronomy helped Nüvü Camēras achieve such a reputation through scientific publications and how they lead to opportunities in the biomedical field as well as the OEM market for integrated imaging systems.
