The scientific qCMOS camera Orca-Quest of Hamamatsu Photonics Deutschland GmbH reduces photoelectric noise to a level below the signals generated by photons. This makes the camera the world’s first camera to achieve 2D photon-number-resolving measurement, meaning that it accurately measures the number of photons to create an image. The camera has an incredibly low noise of 0.27 electrons rms and a pixel count of 9.4 megapixels. Its other features include a back-illuminated structure, 4.6×4.6µm pixel size, reduced crosstalk between pixels, and suppressed variations in the electrical characteristics of each pixel.
