Image Intensifier Module Family: Quantum Leap
Upgrate your setup to full-fledged intensified imaging
Adaptive optics solution
Rotating mirror camera
Synchrotron radiation diagnostic
Quantum Leap is a stand alone image intensifier module, which upgrades your existing setup to a full-fledged intensified imaging system. The Quantum Leap is available as non-gateable or gateable version, where the gateable Quantum Leap is available with minimal gate time of 1.2ns or 200ps. The compact design of all Quantum Leap models hosts everything needed for operation. Only a 12V electrical power supply and a RS232 conection for gateable models is necessary.
Compact image intensifier module
Due to it's compact design all Quantum Leap models can rapidly be mounted to any detector with C-mount camera. As a result of its compact design and the intuitive handling the Quantum Leap is used in many scientific fields and for the most advanced scientific applications.
Highest flexibility with Time/Gain Module
As standard the gateable Quantum Leap enables the external gating. Therefor, the image intensifier is open whenever a low TTL signal is applied to the external gating connector. The Time/Gate module provides a digital access to the Quantum Leap and the ability of remote configuration of the delay and gating time.

Can I use your image intensifier module Quantum Leap to obtain short gating capability from my EMCCD camera?
Of course! Our Quantum Leap is in fact a stand-alone ultra-fast gateable image intensifier that can perfectly be combined with any electron multiplying CCD camera. It provides you with extreme low-light sensitivity and gating times as fast as 200 picoseconds rectangular. It upgrades any EMCCD camera to full-fledged ICCD capabilities.
