dicam pro
image intensifier (MCP) 12 bit CCD camera

The pco.dicam pro provides shutter durations as short as 3 ns with a broad spectral range from UV to NIR. The optical coupling of the sensors to the image intensifier results in an excellent signal-to-noise ratio. The standard fiber optic cable interface transmits data reliably over several hundred meters distance.
