The C15550-20UP is the world’s first camera to incorporate the qCMOS image sensor and to be able to resolve the number of photoelectrons using a newly developed dedicated technology. In order to detect weak light with high signal-to-noise, ORCA-Quest has been designed and optimized to every aspect of the sensor from its structure to its electronics. An extremely low noise performance of 0.27 electrons has been achieved. It can acquire not only PC level images but also photon number resolving images with 9.4MP.
