Detector housings and cryogenics

Here you can find three examples of CCD mounting on cryogenic systems:

  1. CCD KODAK KAF 4202 (2048 x 2028 pixels) mounted on a camera for NEOs observation through Schimdt telescopes

  2. CCD SITe SI404 Grade-0 (2048 x 2028 pixels) mounted on an Oxford cryostat for the Imager of the TNG

  3. Mosaic of two CCD E2V 42-80 mounted on an Infrared-lab cryostat for the SARG spectrograph of the TNG


CCD KODAK KAF 4202

A new CCD camera, based on a 2048 x 2048 pixels has been developed at our laboratory with good success.

The camera has been designed and realized for the observation of the astronomical objects NEOs through Schimdt telescopes. (PIs. Prof. Carlo Blanco - Catania, Prof. Cesare Barbieri - Padova).

 

The main characteristics are listed on the following table:

The complete system is shown in the following picture:
