Paper Abstract

We have developed a high-speed gated, high-resolution digital intensified CCD (D-ICCD) camera. This camera consists of a highly sensitive, high-speed gated image intensifier (UV to infrared image intensifier or X-ray image intensifier) coupled to a digital CCD camera via a fiber optic plate (or relay lens). This camera has an IEEE 1394 interface for control and data transfer to a computer system and also has the following features: wide spectral response (from X-ray to infrared spectral range by using an X-ray image intensifier and an image intensifier with a GaAsP/GaAs photocathode), high-speed gating (20 ns to 10 ms gate width), and high resolution digital CCD camera (1280 x 1024 pixels). This camera will prove a useful tool for high-speed imaging and low-light-level imaging such as biological imaging when coupled with an optical microscope and non-destructive image diagnostics using an X-ray source.
