New Sensor Captures Images In UV Portion Of Light Spectrum

Semiconductor and other imaging applications requiring very high resolutions are expected to be the primary beneficiaries of a new sensor that captures images in the ultraviolet (UV) portion of the light spectrum. Representing a new version of the company's popular KAI-2000 interline CCD image sensor, the 2-million-pixel KAI-2000DUV is sensitive to wavelengths of 200 to 400 nm, whereas existing image sensors are typically sensitive to visible wavelengths (i.e., 400 to 700 nm). The shorter, UV wavelengths are needed for inspecting semiconductors as their design rules become ever finer. And by tapping the interline sensor architecture, the KAI-2000DUV (DUV stands for deep ultraviolet) can also offer electronic shutters, progressive scan readout, square pixels, and the ability to capture frames at the rate of 30 per second. The 2-million-pixel DUV interline CCD image sensor with a spatial resolution of 1600 (H) x 1200 (W) and a 7.4-µm square pixel is available now.
