The TRiCAM, a successor of the Li²CAM, is a compact Intensified CMOS camera for scientific and industrial applications that offers 1) low-light level imaging, 2) ultra-short exposures through fast gating, and/or 3) frequency domain imaging using lock-in detection. The TRiCAM features a 1.4 megapixel interline CMOS fiber optically coupled to a Gen II or Gen III Image Intensifier for optimal transmission efficiency. The high sensitivity of the TRiCAM, down to the single photon level, is supplemented with an acquisition speed up to 162 fps. The TRiCAM (Time Resolved intensified CAMera) is the best choice for ultra-fast imaging in the time domain and/or frequency domain. The TRiCAM is a key component of the LIFA system for camera based / frequency domain FLIM.

Description

The TRiCAM, a successor of the Li²CAM, is a compact Intensified CMOS camera for scientific and industrial applications that offers 1) low-light level imaging, 2) ultra-short exposures through fast gating, and/or 3) frequency domain imaging using lock-in detection. The TRiCAM features a 1.4 megapixel interline CMOS fiber optically coupled to a Gen II or Gen III Image Intensifier for optimal transmission efficiency. The high sensitivity of the TRiCAM, down to the single photon level, is supplemented with an acquisition speed up to 162 fps. The TRiCAM (Time Resolved intensified CAMera) is the best choice for ultra-fast imaging in the time domain and/or frequency domain. The TRiCAM is a key component of the LIFA system for camera based / frequency domain FLIM.

The TRiCAM (Time-Resolved intensified CAMera) is the best choice for ultra-fast imaging in the time domain and/or frequency domain. For time-domain imaging the ICMOS is equipped with an integrated timing pulse generator and gate-unit (TRiCAM G). The TRiCAM G includes the LI-Capture software for control of gate width, gate frequency, delay, gain and binning. Two synchronised TTL output signals (output A and B) are provided for driving pulsed lasers or LEDs.

For frequency domain imaging the ICMOS supports gain modulation of 120 MHz (standard) and higher (external signal generator). This is the TRiCAM M model. Modulation is provided by a single-chip digital synthesizer to ensure a very low phase noise. The TRiCAM is the key component of the Lambert Instruments LIFA system for FLIM. The TRiCAM is highly customizable and can be equipped with the image intensifer that best matches your application. Different camera models covering a range in spectral sensitivity, phosphor, spatial resolution, gain, linearity, minimum gate width and gating frequency are available.

Applications include:

  • Time-resolved imaging and spectroscopy
  • Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV)
  • Laser Induced Fluorescence (LIF)
  • Time-gated luminescence
  • Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging Microscopy (FLIM)
  • Förster Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET)
  • Oxygen imaging
