Alizé 1.7 - Versatile SWIR InGaAs Camera

Photon etc: Alizé 1.7

The Alizé 1.7 is a high-end, scientific grade, 640 x 512 pixels resolution, InGaAs camera that marries performance with reliability. It is amongst the most cost-effective high-end InGaAs cameras on the market featuring low noise levels, high efficiency, and a rapid frame rate compatible with an external trigger. This is made possible by a combination of state-of-the-art control electronics and a four stage thermoelectric cooler (TEC) which can maintain an operating temperature as low as -50 °C. The TEC, in turn, uses forced air cooling which requires none of the maintenance of a water or liquid nitrogen chilled unit.
