Project Description

AXIS-SXRF V2: 4 Mpix Soft X-ray sCMOS camera on a Flange

We are proud to present AXIS-SXRF V2, the new and improved version of our famous AXIS-SXRF soft x-ray sCMOS camera for measurements from 20 eV to 2 keV. It is based on a new backside illuminated scientific CMOS (BSI-sCMOS) which is able to acquire low noise 4 Mpix images with a frame rate up to 74 Hz through its CameraLink interface.

For a fraction of the price, it is more efficient than the high-end x-ray cameras presently on the market.

We now offer a choice of 3 different sensors to suit your needs.

The mechanics have been designed to allow the user to easily change the detector in case of an experiment mishap or if the experiment requires another type of sensor.

As for software, a generic control application is provided. A SDK and a Tango device are also available.

We also offer the in-vacuum version for more positioning versatility.
