Compared to other low flux imaging technologies, an Pushing Sensitivity to the Brink: Selecting the Right Imaging Technology for Your Application published in Biophotonics.shows high quantum efficiency ( ) and little , much like traditional . More, it presents negligible readout noise akin the intensified ( ), thus providing the best sensitivity in poor lighting conditions. For more information about the various low light imaging cameras available today, refer to our article
However, like all imaging technologies, thesuffers from thermal and readout noises as well as other electronic-dependant factors that affect its sensitivity. Clock-induced charges ( ), the prime noise source in , particularly at high readout rates, may contaminate images up to 200 times more than the when only a handful of photons reaches the camera sensor.
Listed below are the primary parameters that, when unaddressed, lessen the sensitivity of low light imagingsystems, along with the means by which Nüvü Camēras inventively and elegantly overcomes such obstacles.
