ORCA-Lightning X X-ray sCMOS camera
The C15606-101P is a high-sensitivity X-ray sCMOS camera with a field of view that is approximately twice that of Hamamatsu’s conventional model. It achieves both a high resolution of 12 million pixels and a high readout speed of 121 frames/s, allowing the imaging of faster phenomena than those that used to be captured in the past, with a wide field of view and high resolution.
A large area sensor of 25.344 mm × 14.256 mm is adopted to achieve a field of view that is approximately twice that of the conventional model C12849-111U.
With a high resolution of 12 million pixels, wide-field imaging is achieved.
While maintaining the same level of readout noise as the C12849-111U, it achieves high-speed imaging at a readout speed of approximately 10 times as compared with the same number of pixels.
It can capture high-speed phenomena that could not be fully captured in the past.

* 1 If a long exposure time is set, saturated pixels may occur. In such cases, use of a High Full Well Capacity mode is recommended.
* 2 Calculated from the ratio of the full well capacity and the readout noise (median).
* 3 If the operating ambient temperature or operating ambient humidity is not satisfied, the cooling process is stopped to protect the camera, and the digital data of the image is set to 0 counts, which is notified.
