Image Intensifiers

Electro-Optics

An image intensifier is an electro-optical system which increases the intensity of available light. This makes it possible to see under low-light conditions, to test fluorescent materials under X-rays or gamma rays, and to convert non-visible light, such as near-infrared and ultraviolet light to visible light. Penlink represents Photonis, a world leader in the production of image intensifiers for military, space, and commercial applications.

Cricket

Plug and play adaptor

The Cricket enables your camera to capture images across a broad spectral range, from 200 to 900nm. Connecting the Cricket is simple, using a universal C-mount interface. Simply adjust the fine focus and begin.

It features an 18mm image intensifier, a fiber optic anode window, and a power supply. The Cricket easily adapts to any camera and lens assembly using C-Mount connections, making it simple to make any camera an intensified camera for use in physics, fluorescence imaging, plasma research or corona detection. 

In addition to providing an intensified image, Cricket can also convert UV and NIR photons into green photons with emission characteristics that perfectly match the spectral response of a solid state camera. High 3ns temporal resolution is made possible with an optional gating module. Cricket supports 1 μlx sensitivity or single photon counting.
