Paper Abstract

For low light level applications, A compact and fully integrated, high-frame-rate and intensified shuttered Electron Multiplying Charge Coupled Device digital image acquisition and analysis system has been developed. The system integrates high-speed data acquisition, image playback, and image processing features. Basing on the a backside-illuminated, 128x128 pixels, frame transfer electron multiplying Charge-coupled device imager with a high quantum efficiency and one video output, A camera operating at up to 800 frames per second has been manufactured. The camera was to be able to do low light level imaging using of the electron multiplying. The camera is coupled with a second generation (Gen II) image intensifier by lens and makes it an IEMCCD camera. The system designs are described, including the clock sequencer generation of the image sensor, the power driving of clock sequencer, the video signal processing, high-speed data optical fiber transmission and high-speed data acquisition. The dynamic range and the sensitivity of the EMCCD camera are introduced, and the results are given.
